The Lynx OMFV can identify and engage battlefield threats faster and farther away due to the digitally developed technologies supplied by L3Harris, which also allows for a reduction in crew size from three to two.

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

The Lynx OMFV from American Rheinmetall Vehicles is equipped with L3Harris third-generation sights, which have smaller, lighter, and far fewer power requirements, and enable faster, more accurate threat recognition.

Due to the enormously powerful processors and artificial intelligence capabilities, crew members receive information much faster. L3Harris offers data connectivity and secure, high-capacity communication systems to enhance command and control and cooperative 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.

Matt Warnick, Managing Director, American Rheinmetall Vehicles

The Lynx OMFV’s digital engineering and modular open systems techniques match the US Army Ground Combat Systems Common Infrastructure Architecture criteria, enabling quicker subsystem updates and faster incorporation of new technology.

The M2 Bradley Fighting Vehicle, in service since 1981, will be replaced by the OMFV, the US Army’s first ground combat vehicle created utilizing contemporary digital engineering tools and methods.

L3Harris, an advanced technology partner, worked with American Rheinmetall Vehicles, Raytheon Technologies, Textron Systems, Allison Transmissions, and Anduril to design and construct the Lynx OMFV.
