Bittium is exhibiting new Bittium Tough SDR tactical radios and launching Bittium Tough VoIP Softphone software product at the Eurosatory defense exhibition in Paris, France on June 11-15, 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 most appropriate waveform with the best fit considering the conditions and the mission, such as Bittium TAC WIN Waveform™, ESSOR HDRWF waveform and Bittium Narrowband Waveform™. The uniquely wide range of frequency bands improves combat survivability and using several waveforms, even simultaneously, improves compatibility and enables operations on different levels and missions.
The tactical radios expand Bittium’s product offering from the current Bittium 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.
