Elbit Systems announced on 3 March it has been selected by Rheinmetall Canada to supply its ELSAT 2100 satcom-on-the-move (SOTM) communications systems for the Canadian armed forces’ Land Command Support System Life Extension (LCSS LE) programme.

Providing reliable, real-time, on-the-move broadband communications using military and commercial satellites, including the US DoD Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) network, the ELSAT 2100 will enable Canadian forces to maintain long-range voice and data connectivity between mobile command vehicles, liaison elements, high-priority sensor vehicles and tactical headquarters or command posts, providing them with high-capacity network services and battle command-on-the-move capabilities.

The new contract follows a 2014 selection of ELSAT 2100 by Rheinmetall Canada on behalf of the Canadian armed forces. Elbit Systems’ involvement with Canada dates back over a decade: the company has considerable experience in providing electronic solution to the Royal Canadian Navy, for example.
