Elbit Systems wins radio systems supply contract for Asia-Pacific Army

Elbit Systems has secured a contract for the supply of radio systems for the undiscovered army in the Asia-Pacific region for a period of 12 months.

As part of the $ 33 million contract, Elbit Systems will be responsible for equipping the undisclosed customer’s artillery and infantry forces with tactical radio systems.

The systems to be equipped include automotive, human and manual configurations.

Elbit Systems noted that the advanced networking capabilities of radio systems allow reliable and secure voice and data communication services over a wide range.

The client awarded the contract after recently deciding to equip its army with additional network combat solutions, including E-LynX Software Defined Radios (SDR) and TORCH-X control and management systems from Elbit Systems.

Several armed forces around the world, including those in Switzerland, Sweden, Germany and Israel, have chosen the company’s radio solutions.

In a separate development, Elbit Systems renamed its wholly owned German subsidiary TELEFUNKEN RACOMS as Elbit Systems Deutschland, strengthening its business operations in the country.

Thomas Nuzel, who has been CEO of TELEFUNKEN RACOMS for the past ten years, will run the company.

Elbit Systems President and CEO Bejalel (Butzi) Mahlis said: “We have been working in Germany for more than a decade, proudly supporting the German armed forces, diligently building our engineering base and developing cooperation with local industry.”

TELEFUNKEN RACOMS provides quality solutions for the German Armed Forces and adds a range of technologies from Elbit Systems’ entire portfolio to its Ulm-based operations.

Technologies include electro-optics, e-warfare, direct infrared countermeasures, software-defined radio, cyber, unmanned systems, command and control.

Last month, Elbit Systems of America won a contract to supply key components of the Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) to the US Army.
