Bittium receives narrowband waveform development order
Bittium has received a purchase order for narrowband waveform development work for the tactical Bittium Tough SDR radios from the Finnish Defence Forces.
Bittium is under contract to deliver the radios to Finland under an agreement signed in December 2018.
Along with the now ordered waveform development work, the Finnish Defence Forces can start field tests with the radios and further waveform development in cooperation with Bittium.
The narrowband waveform enables voice and message transmission over long distances and even in potentially congested communication networks. Bittium Tough SDR radios can use both Bittium Narrowband Waveform and wideband Bittium TAC WIN waveforms, and the European collaborative European Secure Software Defined Radio, High Data Rate Waveform.
