Bittium to provide SDR radios to the Estonian Defence Forces

Bittium has received a purchase order for the software-defined Bittium Tough SDR radios and Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network (TAC WIN) system’s products to be delivered to the Estonian Defence Forces.

The Bittium Tough SDR radios, which are intended for soldier use and vehicle installations, and Bittium TAC WIN products, will complement the tactical communications system that has been delivered to the Estonian Defence Forces already previously.

The purchase order continues the reform that aims to improve the Estonian Land Forces’ IP (Internet Protocol) data transfer capability and availability. Bittium’s tactical communications system ordered already previously is based on the Bittium TAC WIN system and contributes to the reform as part of a bigger system entity.

The system will now be complemented with the next generation software-defined Bittium Tough SDR radios, which are compatible with the wideband and mobile Bittium TAC WIN system. Bittium’s tactical communications system will be used to modernize the IP data transfer, improve the performance of the tactical data network, and diversify the wireless and wired connectivity of the system entity used by the Estonian Land Forces. Bittium TAC WIN system together with the Bittium Tough SDR radios enables bringing broadband data and voice to all mobile troops starting from brigade level and all the way across the battlefield.

Together with the Bittium Tough SDR radios, Bittium will also deliver waveforms, including the wideband Bittium TAC WIN Waveform and the Bittium Narrowband Waveform, as well as accessories. Using several waveforms, even simultaneously, improves the compatibility of the radios to different networks and enables operations on different levels and missions.

The product deliveries will commence during the year 2019.
