Bittium to port ESSOR waveform for Finland
Bittium has received an order from the Finnish Defence Force to port the European European Secure Software-Defined Radio (ESSOR) programme’s Operational Capability (OC) 1 phase wideband waveform to the Bittium Tough SDR radios.
Work on the contract will be complete by the end of 2019. The purchase order is worth around €1.1 million and also includes options for the years 2020-2021.
In December 2018, Bittium and the Finnish Defence Force signed an agreement for the purchase of Bittium Tough SDR handheld and vehicular radios. The porting of the waveform to the national software-defined radios will enable compatibility between radios used in European coalition operations.
The ESSOR OC1 phase is the continuation of the ESSOR programme, which started in 2009, with the aim of enhancing the operational capabilities of the ESSOR High Data Rate Waveform (HDR WF), meant for joint international operations.
The Bittium Tough SDR products can flexibly use the suitable waveform, such as the ESSOR HDR WF, Bittium TAC WIN Waveform and Bittium Narrowband Waveform, to improve compatibility and enable operations on different levels and missions.
