Rugged computers are used in all branches of the military and for good reason. Military grade laptops are able to withstand the intense heat and sand of the desert and can survive the bumps and jolts of an armored vehicle or naval vessel. Rugged military computers have been tested according to military standards (MIL-STD 810F) and have daylight-viewable displays for in-field use.

Military grade laptops must pass a rigorous testing method called the MIL-STD-810F ensure the computer functions as normal in a broad range of harsh environmental conditions. The kind of conditions include altitude testing, high and low temperatures (including temperature shock), harsh and freezing rain, humidity, sand, shock, gunfire vibration, and more. These tests were designed to identify any deficiencies or shortcomings in the design or equipment used in to manufacture rugged devices. Rugged laptops that have passed the MIL-STD-810 test will be able to withstand the many different kind of environments that may be necessary for military personal.

Rugged laptops and devices for military use are designed for ultra-portability to allow for fast deployment and mobility. Many of the tablets come loaded with windows 10 operating system and portable keyboards to allow for easy transition from an office to the field.

GroupMobile specializes in pre-deployment planning, deployment project management and installation, and post-deployment maintenance, which combine as a full-service solution for rugged technology.
