The Rheinmetall business said Tuesday Anduril will provide customized command and control software for Lynx, an IFV platform the industry team is working on to offer for the Army’s Optionally-Manned Fighting Vehicle program.
The software is envisioned to enable collaborative formation maneuver and threat detection, targeting and engagement through C2, tactical awareness and decisive lethality.
“The partnership with Anduril brings with it exceptional innovations in software development, command and control, sensor integration, and counter UAS systems for inclusion in our OMFV offering,” commented Matt Warnick, managing director at American Rheinmetall Vehicles.
Aside from Rheinmetall and Anduril, Team Lynx includes Textron Systems, Raytheon Technologies, L3Harris Technologies and Allison Transmission.
The Lynx OMFV will employ a modular open systems approach and provide room for future power, weight and volume growth to support warfighters in battlefields for decades.
