Anduril Industries joins American Rheinmetall Vehicles’ Team Lynx to deliver data fusion and battlefield awareness for U.S. Army’s Optionally-Manned Fighting Vehicle

American Rheinmetall Vehicles has formed a strategic partnership with Anduril Industries in pursuit of the U.S. Army’s Optionally-Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV) program. American Rheinmetall Vehicles leads Team Lynx in offering the Army a next-generation Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) solution for the OMFV program that features a mature, game-changing platform with a purposeful, future-proof modular design that ensures overmatch for decades to come.

Anduril is the latest member of Team Lynx which consists of leading U.S. defence companies including, Textron Systems, Raytheon Technologies, L3Harris Technologies and Allison Transmission. Anduril will support Team Lynx with customized command and control software for the Lynx OMFV that enables collaborative formation manoeuvre, and the detection, targeting, and engagement of threats for IFVs and future armoured combat battalions.

The partnership with Anduril brings innovations in software development, command and control, sensor integration, and counter UAS systems, enabling the Lynx OMFV to provide operators capabilities not available anywhere else in the world.

“Software is at the core of the weapons and military systems of the future,” said Zach Mears, Head of Strategy, Anduril. “Anduril specializes in delivering advanced mission autonomy, enabling commanders and battle managers to command and control more lethal capability at the tactical edge. We … will leverage our deep experience in artificial intelligence, mission autonomy, and sensor integration to significantly reduce the cognitive burden of the OMFV’s two soldier crew and provide them with next-generation tactical awareness, C2, and decisive lethality to dominate future battlefields.”

Anduril’s software, in alignment with Army’s IDEE software development process, will have an agile based development and improvement plan, integration, and delivery cycles, enabling persistent modernization for IFVs to rapidly adapt to and defeat emerging time-sensitive threats.

The Team Lynx OMFV enables the Army to satisfy its number two modernization priority, a next-generation combat vehicle with leading protection, mobility, growth, and lethality capabilities that will sustain overmatch for decades. The Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA), along with substantial growth potential in power, weight, and volume make the Lynx OMFV exceptionally well prepared to confront the challenges of the future battlefield like no other.
