L3Harris Provides Advanced Sight Systems, Increases Lethality for Next-Generation OMFV

L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) battlefield awareness systems will enable faster identification and targeting capabilities, providing increased lethality for American Rheinmetall Vehicles’ Lynx Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV).

Using digitally engineered systems provided by L3Harris, the Lynx OMFV can detect and engage battlefield threats faster and at greater distances while reducing crew members needed from three to two.

L3Harris capabilities on Lynx OMFV provide mission-critical battlefield awareness for U.S. Army soldiers. These systems enable greater lethality by increasing detection and reducing time to engagement.

The American Rheinmetall Vehicles’ Lynx OMFV features L3Harris third-generation sights with reduced size, weight and power requirements, enabling early, enhanced threat identification. Crew members receive information faster as a result of more powerful processors and artificial intelligence capabilities. L3Harris also provides secure, high-capacity communication systems and data links to improve command and control and collaborative targeting.

Lynx OMFV provides warfighters with leading-edge technology to dominate future battlefields. A big part of retaining overmatch is modular open systems approaches and digital engineering, which L3Harris is a partner in providing, a strength of the American Rheinmetall Vehicles team and a benefit to the soldiers.

Digital engineering and modular open systems approaches in Lynx OMFV meet U.S. Army Ground Combat Systems Common Infrastructure Architecture requirements – allowing integration of new technologies and subsystems updates faster while lowering vehicle lifecycle costs.

The OMFV, the U.S. Army’s first ground combat vehicle designed using modern digital engineering tools and techniques, will replace the M2 Bradley Fighting Vehicle, in service since 1981. L3Harris is an advanced technology partner designing and building Lynx OMFV with American Rheinmetall Vehicles, Raytheon Technologies, Textron Systems, Allison Transmissions and Anduril.
