HIAWATHA, Iowa, 29 Oct. 2013. Crystal Group Inc. in Hiawatha, Iowa, is introducing the TAC-V integrated military communications system for mobile computing capability in a small, lightweight system for infantry and vetronics applications.
The TAC-V is a modular wearable computer system with enough ports to connect to many types of radios, company officials say. These radios range from narrowband or wideband to software defined or legacy, allowing for connectivity on the battlefield.
This system weighs less than nine pounds and can exceed 10 hours of mission support. The TAC-V includes a RD1107 display, RE0911 micro-computer, IOH-05 I/O hub, battery pack, and GPS.
The solution meets military standards (MIL-STD-810) for shock, vibration, and thermal performance. The display's touch screen works with cold weather gear and the sealed micro-computer runs Linux and Windows.
The TAC-V system can be purchased as modular components. These components can be integrated into combat vehicles, helicopters, unmanned vehicles, and in applications where size, weight, and power are critical.
