Tough Corp Launch the most Advanced Mobile Command & Control Field Server



Sydney, June 16, 2011- Getac Technology and Tough Corp have launched a unique, MOTS (Military off the shelf) rugged military command laptop computer designed to meet the demanding requirements of battlefield command positions, military field control centres and maintenance facilities for the Asia Pacific region.

The X500 rugged workstation, which is available immediately, has a 15.6” screen, making it one of the largest rugged laptop currently available, and an Intel Calpella i7-620M 2.66GHz core to give leading edge processing power.

It is backed up with MIL-STD-461F, UL1604, IP65, MIL-STD 810G, has a 5-year-warranty as standard and comes with a uniquely fungus-proof machine body.

With a sunlight readable touch screen, high power Wi-Fi – allowing up to 1000m transmission outdoors – night vision and an easy to remove fan, Getac has built the X500 to be the fastest, most powerful COTS/ MOTS rugged command and control device of its type.

“The X500’s large screen and built-in processing power make this truly leading-edge,” explains James Hwang, President of Getac Technology Corporation. “We have taken commercial off the shelf specification to a new level after incorporating feedback from our customers, shortening delivery lead time and lowering the total cost of ownership.”

“With military command and control centres running multiple software applications and handling large amounts of data, it’s essential they are equipped with top-of-the-range processing speed,” Mr.Hwang adds.

“The X500’s graphics capabilities – the nVidia GT 330M graphic controller – coupled with a large screen also make it the ideal asset for running mapping applications within forward operating bases.”

The X500 Rugged Laptop includes ports as such as dual Gigabit LAN, 2 x RS232 (BIOS adjustable RS422), and 4 x USB ports. It also comes with high levels of security built-in offering TPM 1.2 (Trust Platform Module), Intel vPro Technology, Fingerprint Scanner, Smart Card reader, and is Computrace and Anti-Theft ready.

“Field control devices require multiple I/O connections due to the range of devices requiring an interface with the laptop. That could be anything from satellite and radar equipment to handhelds or diagnostic devices. The X500 is built with that high demand in mind, and offers multiple connectivity ports.”

The standard 15.6” 1366x768 HD display offers1000 NITS upgradable to 1200 NITS, with optional 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) and includes a built-in webcam and HDMI digital video output capabilities.

The unit comes with either a backlit membrane or rubber backlit keyboard, optional Gobi2 WWAN (3.5G), and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n.

“Military command posts need clear and powerful graphics and computing power coupled with more interfaces and complete expandability,” adds Hwang. “We have listened to the feedback from our customers and built in these features as standard.
