Tactical MANET

Mobile ad-hoc networks for a self-healing, mobile and flexible network.

Overview

For troops on-the-move who require flexibility in their operations and tactical communications, Bittium provides tactical Mobile Ad Hoc Network solutions.

With the elements of the Software Defined Radio based Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network™ (TAC WIN) system it is possible to create MANET as an optimal solution for troops in a relatively small area requiring mobility. With the Bittium TAC WIN Waveform, the Bittium TAC WIN MANET is interoperable with other Bittium TAC WIN networks and also with combat vehicles and dismounted soldiers using Bittium Tough SDR Vehicular™ and Handheld™ radios on the lower echelons.

When using ESSOR High Data Rate Waveform with the Bittium Tough SDR tactical radios, broadband data transfer, cooperation and direct communications also between different national troops in coalition operations is possible.

MANET as Part of the Wireless Backbone Network

The Bittium TAC WIN RH-I radio unit is for the NATO I frequency band 225-400 MHz and it is used in conjunction with the Bittium TAC WIN Tactical Router™ and Bittium TAC WIN Waveform™. It is an optimal MANET solution that is interoperable with different Bittium TAC WIN networks.

MANET for Combat Vehicles

The two-channel Software Defined Radio based Bittium Tough SDR Vehicular brings broadband data and voice to mobile troops. For MANET connectivity, it is possible to use Bittium TAC WIN Waveform and ESSOR High Data Rate Waveform even simultaneously.

MANET for Dismounted Soldiers

The Software Defined Radio based Bittium Tough SDR Handheld is meant for individual soldiers, such as squad or platoon leader.  The waveform portofolio for the handheld includes Bittium Narrowband, Bittium TAC WIN and ESSOR High Data Rate Waveforms.
