Bittium TAC WIN for Finnish Air Force
The system has been ordered as part of a project to modernise the radio network performance of the air force’s bases.
Bittium TAC WIN is a software-defined radio based wireless broadband network system. The system allows mobile ad hoc network, link, and connection networks to be formed into one logical IP network quickly, regardless of location.
The network is compatible with existing fixed and wireless network infrastructures. The system is formed around a tactical router that enables users to freely form both wired and wireless broadband data transfer IP connections. The tactical router also enables connections to different types of terminals and other communication systems connecting them into a single network.
In addition to the router the system comprises three types of radio heads, with each radio head covering its own frequency band area and able to be used for flexible formation of optimised network topologies to meet different communication needs.
The company has previously supplied the TAC WIN system to other branches of the Finnish defence forces.
Deliveries will take place during 2017.
