Bittium received a purchase order from the Finnish Defence Forces
Bittium received a purchase order from the Finnish Defence Forces to continue ESSOR Waveform Porting to the Bittium Tough SDR™ Tactical Radios.
The order is a continuation to the ESSOR waveform porting order received in 2019. With the current purchase order, the porting proceeds from design phase to implementation phase. The porting of the waveform to the national software-defined radios enables compatibility between radios used in European coalition operations, in accordance with the goals of the ESSOR programme.
The ESSOR OC1 phase has continued the ESSOR programme, started in 2009, with the aim of enhancing the operational capabilities of the ESSOR High Data Rate Waveform (HDR WF) meant for joint operations of different national troops. The Bittium Tough SDR products can flexibly use the most suitable and best performing waveform, such as the ESSOR HDR Waveform, Bittium TAC WIN Waveform™ and Bittium Narrowband Waveform™. Using several waveforms, even simultaneously, improves compatibility and enables operations on different levels and missions.
The value of the purchase order is approximately EUR 1.6 million (excl. VAT). With the purchase order, the Finnish Defence Forces are taking up an option for the year 2020 from a purchase order announced in a press release on April 5, 2019. The corresponding work will be carried out during the year 2020.
