Bittium, Leonardo and Thales along with the Finnish Defence Forces have demonstrated the capabilities and functionalities of the HDRWF (High Data Rate Waveform) in the European ESSOR programme (European Secure Software defined Radio) in battlefield conditions and with a 15 radio node configuration.
The activity was carried out to demonstrate how the land forces of different European countries can communicate seamlessly with each other in joint operations, linking up via a common waveform regardless of the radio platforms they use.
The capabilities of the waveform were showcased by operating command and control, situational awareness, video streaming and VoIP (Voice over IP). The radio platforms used were the Bittium TAC WIN system, the Leonardo SWave software-defined radio system and software-defined radio by Thales.
The aim of the ESSOR program established by European Defense Agency (EDA) is to develop the European Software Defined Radio technology in order to improve the capabilities for cooperation in coalition operations.
