Bittium’s Products and Systems Enabling Resilient Tactical Communications and Certified Secure Communications Solutions Showcased at the Defense Event Eurosatory

Bittium Corporation press release on June 13, 2024, at 10.00 a.m. (CEST +1)

Bittium joins the defense and security event Eurosatory from 17–21 June 2024, in Paris, France to showcase its products and systems enabling resilient tactical communications and certified secure communication solutions.

The next-generation products and systems for tactical communications enable broadband IP-based data transfer and voice across the battlefield. For example, the software-defined radio based Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network™ system and Bittium Tough SDR™ radios can be used to form resilient, modular, and scalable tactical communications networks that enable real-time situational awareness from frontline troops to brigade level.

The Tough SDR radios use three different waveforms for communications: Bittium TAC WIN Waveform™, Bittium Narrowband Waveform™, and ESSOR High Data Rate Waveform. Together with the TAC WIN Waveform, the radios can be used in the same network with the TAC WIN system that forms the backbone for tactical communications. ESSOR High Data Rate Waveform is a waveform developed by the a4ESSOR consortium (Bittium, Indra, Leonardo, Radmor, Rohde & Schwarz, Thales) and it ensures interoperable tactical communications amongst defense forces. NATO adopted the waveform as interoperability standard (STANAG 5651) for tactical communications.

Products and systems for tactical communications:

The products and solutions that enable secure communications include the ultra secure and rugged Bittium Tough Mobile™ 2 C smartphone and the related Bittium Secure Suite™ encryption and device management software. Together they form a smartphone solution that has the official Confidential level encryption product classification (NCSA-FI) and it fulfills the criteria set for NATO Restricted level communications.

Products and solutions for secure communications:

  • Bittium Tough Mobile™ 2 C is a smartphone designed for demanding ultra secure mobile communications. It is a combination of unparalleled hardware- and software-based information security features as well as durability, and two completely separate and hardened operating systems.
  • Bittium Tough Mobile™ 2 Tactical is a complete solution that enables soldier mobile communications.  It is based on the secure and rugged Bittium Tough Mobile 2 smartphone that can be connected with either Bittium Tough SDR Handheld radio or third-party tactical radios.
  • Bittium Secure Suite™ device management and encryption software product enables efficient utilization of the information security features of the Tough Mobile smartphones as well as reliable mobile device management, remote attestation, and secures the data transmission of the device.
  • Bittium Secure Call™ application’s information security covers end-to-end encrypted voice and video calls, group calls, messages with attachments, group messaging, and push-to-talk voice messages.

All Bittium’s products are compatible with each other, are based on the latest software and device technologies, and offer diverse connectivity options also to third-party equipment and systems.

The products and solutions are showcased at Bittium’s stand Hall 6 H144.
