DRS, a world leader in high performance, ultra rugged computer systems for the Military Segment wanted to provide evidence that their new mobile computing Industrial Tablet PC’s (the ARMOR X10) could withstand the same harsh & intense environment that occur on the battlefield. Most importantly, they wanted to prove that the digital data & content housed within their tablets (via SSD’s) would not compromised and was able to sustain an intense beating.
How did ELCOM Make A Difference:
ELCOM engaged Intel’s FPG Division, and worked w/ DRS on a co-marketing effort, where Intel secured one of DRS’s new ARMOR X10 Tablets, and equipped it w/ an Intel Ephraim SATA SSD, and raced it in the 2008 Baja Off Road Race to highlight and validate the reliability and ruggedness of both the DRS PC Tablet & the Intel SSD.
ELCOM made it happen and 500 miles, 11hrs, 6 crashes, 97 mph top speed, 1000’s of rocks, ruts, whoops, & jumps later… both the DRS ARMOR X10 Tablet and the Intel SSD survived and maintained operation during the entire Event.
