MilDef The Smart Choice For Combat - Rugged Computer Systems

MilDef specialises in the design, development and manufacture of combat-rugged computers and special electronics that withstand the punishment of military operations and extreme environments.

High-performance computer and network systems, notebooks and PDAs

The firm supplies military off-the-shelf (MOTS) units developed and manufactured in-house, often complemented with its hardware according to customer specifications. Typical products include high-performance computer and network systems, notebooks, personal digital assistants (PDAs), tablets, 19″/2® standard form factor products and special electronics.

Mildef’s flexibility enables it to respond quickly to customer demands, customise units to exacting standards and offer short delivery times.

The company can produce prototype units within a short time frame. As it has a global sales and support organization, Mildef can take care of customers needs, no matter the location.

Highly-rugged notebook with SATA

There are three important factors when considering rugged mobile computers; weight, ruggedness and performance. The Rocky RS11 / RV11 series from MilDef excels in each of these areas.

Without sacrificing any of its rugged performance for military applications, the Rocky RS11/RV11 packs all the performance needed, and more. With main features such as an Intel i7-3517UE CPU, Intel HD graphics 4000, serial advanced technology attachment (SATA) III solid-state drive (SSD) and up to 8GB random access memory (RAM), the user will have all the performance required in a highly rugged package that weighs only 2.5kg in the RS11 and 3.7kg in the RV11 (depending on configurations).

Despite their low weight and size, the Rocky RS11 / RV11 are designed for extreme environments and are made to be used in the field. Both models are supplied with MIL-STD-810G and IP65 certification as standard. The RS11 comes with a 13.3in screen and the RV11 with a 15.6in screen.

Portable computer series with interchangeable connections

The Rocky notebook series has proven to be one of the best rugged portable computer series on the market. The series is built out of separate modules, giving the opportunity for interchangeable connections and configurations and the addition of numerous accessories.

Suitable applications include military, rescue, police, fire, industry, offshore and service personnel.

The Rocky Notebook is available in 15.1in and 17in screen sizes, both of which have no fan, meaning quiet and reliable operation.

Tough table computer for demanding applications

The Panther DR/DK10 is one of the toughest computers on the market, and has a processor and graphic capacity for heavy and demanding applications.

The concept is expandable, upgradeable with a wide array of accessories and mounting options all to give customers the freedom to craft the ideal solution and that suits special and military applications.

Rugged ultra-mobile PC

The Panther DB7 is a fully rugged ultra-mobile PC equipped with all the technology needed in the size of a PDA. It is based on the 64-bit architecture 1.33GHz Intel Atom Dual Core E3825 Bay Trail-I CPU, up to 8GB DDR3L and up to 256GB SSD drive.

The display is a 5in video graphics array (VGA) sunlight readable transflective LCD with touch screen. The DB7 can be equipped in many different ways to meet customer requirements and applications. It is standard equipped with 1xUSB, SIM-slot, secure digital (SD) slot, speakers and docking connector. Options include GPS, wire local-area network (WLAN), bluetooth, sealed LAN, sealed USB, sealed COM, sealed audio, WWAN, 5.0 MP camera and fingerprint reader.

The DB7 can run Linux or Windows 7 and MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461F and IP65 are standard.

MIL-standard computers for mounting or containers

The 19in/2® form factor enables modular construction within standardised width, height and mounting methods.

Low weight, small size, low energy consumption and less heat are automatically achieved.

All the units are rugged, with specifications that meet several MIL standards. These rugged computers and network products are perfect for mounting in military vehicles or containers in the following configurations:

  • Stand-alone
  • Two devices mounted together horizontally in a 19in rack
  • Multiple devices on top of each other
  • Products from the 19″/2® series:
  • Ethernet switches
  • RS232/422/485 switches
  • Cisco routers and switches
  • Satellite router
  • Voice over IP (VoIP) router
  • Panel PCs
  • Computers
  • Servers
  • Network time protocol (NTP) server
  • Redundance array of independent disks (RAID) systems
  • Displays
  • Alternating current / direct current
  • Uninterruptible power supply (UPS)
  • Power distribution unit
    MilDef will continue to develop products in the 19″/2® family as it is currently working on several new modules.

The firm can also build customised devices in accordance with a client’s requirements. This could involve anything from changing connectors or specifications on existing modules to a complete new product.

All R&D and design work is conducted in-house by Mildef engineers to ensure full control over both development and production. Customers should contact the firm with any ideas or requirements.

RD Series for modern command control communications

The rugged displays (RD) series allows optimal use of modern command control communications and information systems, even under hardest environmental conditions.

Customised mounting systems, customisable interfaces and the possibility to equip a touch screen guarantee a high cross section operating spectrum.

RD series displays are optimised for use with Rocky DP DVI for USB and remote on / off function.

Displays of the RD series are available in 10.4in, 15in, 17in, 19in, 21in, 40in and 46in screen sizes and meet Mil 810E and IP54 (or better) standards.

Custom-built solutions

Not every challenge has an off-the-shelf solution, many of the innovations forces around the world rely on today started out as customisation initiatives.

Whether it’s a few tailored products or hundreds of units, MilDef can help convert a concept for a better solution into reality with speed and efficiency. Such projects generally involve modifying computers and connectors, designing a space-saving setup and enhancing units with a huge range of accessories.

MilDef are also capable of integrating data security solutions and tempest requirements. Every new unit is tested in an EMI chamber to ensure it meets all the required standards.
