DRS Tactical Systems, a subsidiary of DRS Technologies recently unveiled its newest ARMOR rugged tablet computer, the ARMOR X10gx. The all-new 10.4" rugged tablet is designed to enhance the efficiency and productivity of an increasingly mobile workforce and is planned to ship by September 15, 2010.
"The ARMOR X10gx is our tenth generation offering. We have drawn upon many years of our experience as well as the experience from our military and commercial personnel that have deployed our rugged mobile computers around the world," said Mike Sarrica, vice president and general manager for DRS Tactical Systems.
"To meet the demanding conditions encountered by people working in field service; transportation, rail and port facilities; public safety, and other areas of challenging environments, our new rugged tablet meets MIL-STD-810G and is approved by UL for use in explosive and/or hazardous environments. It also carries an ingress protection (IP) rating of 67, meaning it is fully protected against dust and can withstand the effects of immersion in water to depths up to 1 meter," Sarrica added.
With a weight of 4.7 pounds and certified to operate in extreme conditions, the ARMOR X10gx also features a new docking system, AT&T wireless certification and an optional integrated Gobi 2000 mobile broadband to keep the user connected on multiple wireless networks.
The ARMOR X10gx also is equipped with standard 802.11n Wireless LAN connectivity and Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR (Class 2), as well as integrated GPS. Standard routing of GPS and WLAN to two RF ports allows switching between internal antennas within the unit and external antennas, such as those mounted on a vehicle roof.
Other features include an Intel Core2 Duo Processor with up to 4GB RAM and Intel embedded Montevina system architecture and a 64GB solid-state hard drive with options up to 160GB that is user-replaceable.
