Finnish Defence Forces order Bittium Tactical Power Pack

1st December 2020 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Deliveries scheduled for first half of 2021, to enable uninterruptable use of Tough Conmode devices

Bittium has received a €1.1 million ($1.32 million) purchase order from the Finnish Defence Forces for Bittium Tactical Power Packs to power tactical communication devices.

Tactical Power Packs will be used by the Finnish Defence Forces as accessories for portable Bittium Tough Comnode devices, the company noted in a 30 November statement.

The Tactical Power Packs will be delivered to the Finnish Defence Forces during the first half of 2021.

The Finnish Defence Forces use Tough Comnode as VoIP phones, IP routers and SHDSL repeaters to fulfil the data transfer needs of mobile troops.

The Bittium Tactical Power Pack includes two 70 Wh, 6.7 Ah batteries that are attached with an adapter, so that the power pack can also be used as a charger for the two batteries.

Swapping over batteries can be done quickly ‘without interrupting the power supply to the device being charged,’ Bittium claimed. ‘This enables uninterrupted field use for the device.’
