MELBOURNE, Fla., 25 Feb. 2012. The DRS Technologies Inc. Tactical Systems Division in Melbourne, Fla., is introducing the company's next generation of the MRT rugged tablet computer, based on the Intel Core i7 processor, for rugged tactical computing applications in the field such as military situational awareness, command and control, communications, and targeting.
The Core i7 dual core processor combines with improved processing capacity, faster graphics, expanded memory, video capture capability, extended battery life, and improved security features. The new-generation MRT rugged tablet meets or exceeds MIL STD-810G for environmental conditions, MIL-STD-461E for EMI/EMC conditions, and MIL-STD-1275D for operating with DC vehicle power.
The rugged tablet has an Express Card slot behind a sealed door for customizing with standard communications devices such as a TacLink or a PCIDM modem for interfacing with various voice and data radios. The computer can accept either a commercial GPS with better than 10-meter positional accuracy or an optional SAASM GPS with a front bezel mounted patch antenna.
The MRT is made from military-grade, high strength aluminum alloy housing, has four gigabytes of , and 128 gigabytes of solid state hard drive data storage. It can operate without fans or forced air cooling, and has a 10.4-inch liquid crystal display that is direct sunlight viewable. The rugged tablet also has hot-swappable dual lithium-ion battery packs.
The user can control an LED backlight for operations ranging from bright sunlight to nighttime use. Variants of the DRS military rugged tablet are deployed in the U.S. Army Mortars Fire Control, FBCB2, and Movement Tracking System (MTS).
