GD Itronix Rugged UMPC Offers Pocket-Size Portability

— June 28, 2011

General Dynamics Itronix introduces the new, fully rugged, pocket-sized GD2000. About the size of two stacked paperback books, the GD2000 provides the ultra-mobility of a handheld computer with the powerful performance of a full-sized notebook.

The ideal combination of size, weight, and power, the GD2000 weighs just over 2 lbs. and comes equipped with the Intel Ultra Low Voltage Core Solo processor, highly sensitive GPS and a 5.6-inch daylight-viewable DynaVue touch-screen display.  

Mark Johnston, director of strategic computing solutions for General Dynamics Itronix, says, “The GD2000 is designed for the most extreme work environments. For example, after jumping from a plane with the GD2000 strapped to their chests, military paratroopers can pinpoint or change their landing location as well as receive updated mission information while in flight and after they land.”

For military, law enforcement, emergency first responders, and field service personnel working in environments where conditions are harsh and space is limited, the fully rugged GD2000 delivers mission-critical wireless, full-power computing.

Key features of the GD2000 include:

Battery-conserving, sunlight-viewable DynaVue touch screen display delivers crisp, clear images of maps and videos in full sunlight.
New zoom-in/zoom-out keyboard button lets users quickly and accurately adjust map and image views.
Integrated hard drive slot enables users to easily swap hard drives without tools.
On-the-fly Lithium-ion battery changes improve user productivity.
Updated Trusted Platform Module security chip and user authentication software protect the GD2000 from unauthorized access.

Additional features:

Fully integrated, high-sensitivity SIRFstarIII GPS
Wireless Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity
Ergonomic 77-key backlit keyboard
Six-hour battery life and EnergyStar rating
MIL-STD 810G certification
Ingress Protection (IP) 54 rated
Three-year warranty
