IWI ARAD AR is equipped with a picatinny rail to enable the use of a variety of optics and other attachments. The picatinny rail is an integral part of the upper receiver of the rifle. In addition, M-LOK rails at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions along the handguard. It includes a telescopic buttstock which allows the users to adjust the length individually for their particular needs. The modular structure of the rifle enables the user to easily dismantle and replace the barrel. The weapon is fully ambidextrous with controls on both sides of the rifle.

The E-LynX soldier radios are designed to enable advanced networked combat solutions in both open field and urban areas. Soldiers can use the system for access to several voice groups in a single channel and fast data services. The radios will support the effective closing of the sensor to shooter loop. Additionally, integrated blue force tracking (BFT) capability offered by the systems will facilitate accurate location monitoring. The radios are incorporated with concurrent flooding techniques that offer extended range over a multi-hop network and improved network agility and robustness. Furthermore, flooding techniques help reduce network latency.
