Bittium Tough SDR Handheld™ is a next generation Software Defined Radio (SDR) based tactical handheld radio for individual soldiers, such as squad or platoon leader. With the radio it is possible to bring broadband data transfer and voice to mobile troops starting from brigade level and all the way across the battlefield. This improves the performance and the effectiveness of the tactical troops, and leading the troops is easier based on the up-to-date situational awareness and more reliable connections.
With Bittium Tough SDR Handheld troops can communicate securely over narrowband and wideband waveforms. The radio can flexibly use the best performing waveform considering the conditions and the mission. The uniquely wide range of frequency bands in the radios improves combat survivability. Using several waveforms improves compatibility and enables operations on different levels and missions. Also legacy and national proprietary waveforms can be seamlessly ported to the radio with national COMSEC and TRANSEC.
The radio belongs to the Bittium Tough SDR product family that consists of two advanced tactical radio products meant for military use.
- Bittium Tough SDR Handheld™
- Bittium Tough SDR Vehicular™
The radios provide a uniquely wide frequency range, 30-2500MHz, across several frequency bands. Together with flexible configuration options and routing networks, even thousands of radios in one network are supported.
The radios are compatible with the Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network™ (TAC WIN) and together with SDR based system, it is possible to bring broadband data and voice to all mobile troops starting from brigade level and all the way across the battlefield.
