A new rugged military tablet computer iX104C4M, which will greatly improve situational awareness and computing power onboard military vehicles such as the Stryker, has been unveiled by Xplore Technologies Corporation.

Xplore president and chief operating officer Mark Holleran said that engineering a commercial-off-the-shelf product to meet stringent battlefield conditions was a significant undertaking.

“We developed the iX104C4M to be a computing tool addressing the difficult extremes of most military situations, whether for command and control or situational awareness in a vehicle, on the flight line or in a tank,” he said.

The military tablet computer features AllVue Xtreme display technology with night vision imaging system compatibility, a flexible user interface with dual mode functionality, Intel Core Duo technology, Windows 7 and military standard 461F compliance for battlefield computing.

Key features of the computer include extended thermal operating ranges and customisable mounting solutions for military vehicles such as the MRAP / M-ATV, Buffalo and Stryker.
