Rugged and reliable computers, purpose-built for mission success for defense and commercial deployments, installations, and integrations. COTS, MCOTS, and custom solutions. Standards-based and MOSA-aligned modular design and open architectures.

Purpose-Built for Mission Success

Our rugged computing solutions are designed and manufactured for continuous operation under the most extreme and austere environmental conditions on the planet. We have a 30+ year proven track record of excellence with tens of thousands of rugged computers successfully delivered and supported for defense and commercial enterprises worldwide.

Whether on a frac truck in west Texas or on an autonomous vehicle in Eastern Europe (and anywhere and everywhere in between), our rugged computing solutions are purpose-built to withstand any environment and support any mission.

We offer comprehensive ruggedization, designing, testing, and certifying to numerous environmental standards including:

  • MIL-STD-810H
  • MIL-STD-461G
  • MIL-STD-1275E
  • MIL-STD-704F
  • MIL-S-901D
  • MIL-DTL-901E
  • MIL-STD-167
  • DO-160G

A Primer on Video Encoding

Whenever you watch a video – whether it is streamed over a network or downloaded onto a device – the chances are that the original files have been compressed and the file size shrunk to make it more manageable for the bandwidth and storage available to you at the time. This compression is known as video encoding and it is a hugely important process to ensure that video data can be stored and transmitted efficiently, even over constrained networks where bandwidth is limited.

Ruggedized Computer Data Storage 101

Ruggedized storage solutions are critical for defense and industrial applications, giving users the capability to securely store different types of data that is collected during missions and operations. For demanding applications, it is vital that storage solutions are encrypted and expertly ruggedized to ensure that data is not lost or compromised as a result of the adverse and challenging conditions.

MOSA Virtual Summit Recap
