Bittium has received a purchase order from the Finnish Defence Forces for Bittium Tactical Power Pack™ products for powering tactical communication devices. The Tactical Power Packs will be used by the Finnish Defence Forces as accessories for the portable Bittium Tough Comnode™ devices. The Finnish Defence Forces use the Tough Comnode devices for example as VoIP phones, IP routers and SHDSL repeaters to fulfil the data transfer needs of mobile troops.
Bittium Tactical Power Pack includes two 70 Wh, 6.7 Ah batteries that are attached as one with an adapter. This way, the Tactical Power Pack can also be used as a charger for the two batteries. The Tactical Power Pack is an excellent accessory for mobile troops as its batteries can be changed quickly to new fully charged batteries one by one without interrupting the power supply to the device being charged. This enables uninterrupted field use for the device.
The value of the purchase order is approximately €1.1M (excl. VAT). The Tactical Power Packs will be delivered to the Finnish Defence Forces during the first half-year of 2021 and the purchase order does not change Bittium’s financial outlook for the year 2020.
