Estonia orders communications systems from Bittium
Bittium has received a contract to provide its software-defined Bittium Tough Software Defined Radio (SDR) and Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network (TAC WIN) to the Estonian defence forces.
To begin being delivered this year, the Tough radios are intended for soldier use and vehicle installations, which along with the TAC WIN capability, will complement a tactical communications system that has already been delivered to the Estonian forces.
Estonia is reforming its land forces’ IP data transfer capability and availability, and the previously delivered tactical communications systems along with the new TAC WIN capability contributes to that effort.
This will be further leveraged by the Tough SDR radios, which are compatible with the wideband and mobile versions of the TAC WIN system.
Bittium’s tactical communications system will be used to modernise the IP data transfer, improve the performance of the tactical data network, and diversify the wireless and wired connectivity of the system used by Estonian forces.
They will collectively provide broadband data and voice to all mobile troops, starting from brigade level all the way across the battlefield.
Alongside the 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 company says.
