Bittium Corporation’s Tactical Backbone Network has been selected as part of the new Austrian Defense Forces’ (ADF) IP-based Tactical Communication System.
Bittium announced on November 23, 2018, that its cooperation partner, Austrian information technology company Kapsch BusinessCom AG was informed by the Austrian defense administration (Bundesministerium für Landesverteidigung BMVL) that it should be selected as the provider of the new IP-based tactical communication system for the ADF in case no appeals by the losing parties of the competitive bidding will be filed during the next 10-days appeal period, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
This is a typical process in such public competitive bidding. The 10-day appeal period has expired and no appeals have been filed. The signing of the contract is scheduled to December 2018.
Bittium’s products for tactical communications are part of Kapsch BusinessCom’s winning bid, including the Software Defined Radio based Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network (TAC WIN) system, which will be the core of the new communication system, as well as Bittium Tough Comnode and Bittium Tough VoIP products.
The product deliveries are expected to take place during the years 2019-2021.
