Oulu, Finland, November 7, 2018 – Bittium exhibits the new Bittium Tough SDR tactical radios and Bittium Tough Comnode terminal at the Indo Defence event in Jakarta, Indonesia on November 7-11, 2018.
The Bittium Tough SDR product family of tactical radios consists of Bittium Tough SDR Handheld™, tactical handheld radio for individual soldiers, and Bittium Tough SDR Vehicular™, tactical radio for vehicle installations. The radios can flexibly use the best performing waveform considering the conditions and the mission, such as the Bittium TAC WIN Waveform™, ESSOR HDR Waveform and Bittium Narrowband Waveform™. The uniquely wide range of frequency bands in the radios improves combat survivability. Using several waveforms, even simultaneously, improves compatibility and enables operations on different levels and missions.
The tactical radios extend Bittium’s product range from the software-defined Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network™ (TAC WIN) system, used for forming a tactical broadband mobile IP backbone network, now also to individual soldier and vehicular level tactical radios. This enables bringing broadband data transfer and voice to all mobile troops starting from brigade level and all the way across the battlefield to individual soldiers.
Bittium Tough Comnode™ fulfils the data transfer needs for mobile troops by functioning for example as a VoIP phone (Voice over IP), an IP router (Internet Protocol), and an SHDSL repeater (Symmetrical High-speed Digital Subscriber Line). Additionally, Bittium Tough Comnode also provides SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) server functionalities of the tactical voice network for commercial VoIP terminals and enables using also legacy Combat Net Radios (CNR) as part of the IP-based tactical communication system (Radio over IP, RoIP).
The products are compatible with all Bittium’s tactical communications products and solutions, combine the latest software and device technologies, and enable comprehensive broadband data transfer and IP calls across the battlefield. The products offer diverse connectivity options also to third-party equipment and systems.
Bittium’s products and solutions are exhibited at stand F217.
