Elbit Systems has added multi-channel and full-duplex technology to its E-LynX family of software-defined radios (SDRs).
Upgrades significantly increase network bandwidth by further empowering the company’s SDR-based multidomain digital transformation solution.
When using radio systems with single or dual radio frequency channels, the ability of tactical users to transmit and receive information depends on the availability of the channel, which limits the scope and presence in the network of users.
Elbit Systems’ new patented multi-channel technology allows the simultaneous use of multiple radio frequencies for transmission and reception, using one or more waveforms, ensuring network availability and presence at all times – a key factor in multi-domain operations.
The multi-channel network capability improves the optimization of spectrum resource allocation and improves the ability to perform concurrent missions, while maintaining fast, robust, secure, interoperable, and immune communications across any terrain.
Current tactical radio technologies allow access to the network for one user at a time. The new full-duplex technology allows tactical users to exchange information simultaneously and have dynamic conversations, speeding up the flow of information.
The E-LynX SDR family is the preferred choice of several countries for their multi-domain digital transformation, including Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, Brazil and Israel. More than ten thousand multi-channel full-duplex E-LynX SDR systems will be delivered by Elbit Systems under several of these programs.
