Bittium has received a purchase order from the Finnish Defence Forces for Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network (TAC WIN) system’s products. This is part of the digitization efforts of the Finnish Defence Forces that are renewing their command, control and communications system as a first step.

Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network (TAC WIN) is a Software-Defined Radio based wireless broadband network system intended for military and public safety use. The system supports MANET (mobile ad hoc network), link and connection networks, therefore it can be formed into one logical IP network quickly, independent of the location or existing infrastructure.

The core of the system is a tactical router that enables users to freely form both wired and wireless broadband data transfer IP connections. This tactical router also enables connections to different types of terminals and other communication systems connecting them into one communication network. In addition to the router, the system comprises three types of radio heads, and each radio head covers its own frequency band area and can be used for flexible formation of optimized network topologies for different communication needs.

All the products of the system are designed for harsh conditions, and thanks to the system’s automated functions the implementation of the system can be done quickly. Due to the software-based functionality of the Bittium TAC WIN system, it can be easily updated with additional performance cost-efficiently during the whole lifespan of the system.
