According to The Jerusalem Post, the contract, which was awarded by the Swiss Federal Department of Defense, Civil Protection and Sport, is aimed to provide the armed forces with an army-wide tactical mobile Software Defined Radio (SDR) network solution under the Telecommunications Armed Forces digitization program that it is currently going through.

Haim Delmar, general manager of Elbit Systems C4I and Cyber, commented that “Switzerland is a strategic market for us, and we will continue with our efforts to support the Swiss Armed Forces and expand our cooperation with Swiss industry. This contract award underlines the growing recognition by European Armed Forces of the E-LynX mobile SDR solution as the favored enabler for advanced military mobile networking and digitization.
