Elbit Systems Deutschland


Innovation, advanced technology and uncompromising quality for more than 100 years

With his discovery of electromagnetic waves, Heinrich Hertz proved to be the initiator of radio communication at the end of the 19th century, which led to the founding of the TELEFUNKEN company in 1903.

For more than 100 years, the German brand TELEFUNKEN has been known worldwide and stands for innovative thinking, highly developed technology and uncompromising quality. In recent years, the traditional company TELEFUNKEN RACOMS, together with Elbit Systems as a group, has recorded strong growth. The company has been a 100 percent independent subsidiary of Elbit Systems since 2007. With its own product portfolio and the jointly developed products, both the development and further expand production in Germany. Today’s activities have long since extended beyond the market segments originally served and the initial product range.
