Bittium has been awarded a $3.1 million contract by the Finnish defence forces for the development of a new software package (waveform) for the Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network (TAC WIN) system, it announced on 24 February.

TAC WIN is the wireless broadband network used by Finnish forces in its M18 command, control and communications system. The software-defined radio based Bittium TAC WIN system forms the core of the army’s tactical wireless IP network, providing a mobile broadband IP network connection for combat troops. 

The new software package will enhance the performance, data transfer capacity and survivability of the software and the related radio platform. The package will be delivered in 2016.

The work is a continuation of the 2011 delivery contract signed by the defence forces and Bittium, and subsequent product deliveries and purchase orders during 2012-2015.
