General Dynamics Itronix Introduces Rugged Notebook for LE

June 07, 2011  | 


General Dynamics Itronix introduces the new, fully-rugged GD8200 notebook computer. The GD8200 delivers powerful computing, razor-sharp images in full sun and highly sensitive global positioning in a compact, fully-rugged case.

Equipped with the new high-speed Intel Core i7 processor, the GD8200 handles hefty imagery, video and data files enabling increased officer productivity.

"We've worked hard to earn the confidence of users working outdoors or in locations where conditions can be harsh and unpredictable," says Mark Johnston, director of Strategic Computing Solutions for General Dynamics Itronix. "Making the GD8200 more power-efficient, smaller and lighter than most computers in the fully-rugged class means this rugged notebook is real-world ready."

Addressing law enforcement's critical need for wireless connectivity, the GD8200 combines Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth, and 4G mobile broadband technology to enable seamless roaming for uninterrupted connectivity. The battery-conserving, sunlight-viewable DynaVue II touch screen display delivers clarity and detail when viewing maps and videos. The GD8200 also is designed for ergonomic comfort with standard computing operations and keys positioned for ease-of-use, day or night, with gloves or without.

The GD8200 meets U.S. military MIL-STD 810G. It is subjected to 35 environmental tests, including punishing drops, shock, vibration, and extreme heat and cold and has an Ingress Protection (IP) 65 rating. The company also certifies the GD8200 to operate in helicopters, withstand electromagnetic emissions, and it has passed rigorous crash testing for in-vehicle occupant safety.

The General Dynamics Itronix GD8200 list price starts at $4,460.
