Fully-Rugged, Ultra-Mobile PC

It's all about mobility. The pocket-sized GD2000 fully-rugged, ultra-mobile PC from General Dynamics Itronix delivers the power, durability and mobility that users have come to expect from our line of high-performance, fully-rugged, ultra-mobile PCs.

The GD2000, featuring DynaVue® display technology, has a powerful Intel® Processor that can leverage multi-threaded applications and a Lithium-Ion, hot swappable battery pack that allows the user to replace the battery without system interruption. A MicroDIMM memory expansion slot provides increased memory space and an ergonomically designed keyboard increases the usability and functionality of this ultra-mobile PC.

The GD2000 is engineered to include an innovative expansion module architecture. The optional expansion modules allow the GD2000 to integrate additional functionality into the existing base unit, providing expanded flexibility through added modular I/O options.

Powerful, Pocket-Sized, Fully-Rugged


The GD2000 is powerful, pocket-sized, and fully-rugged 

It’s all about MOBILITY – GD2000 is a full-featured, fully-rugged handheld computer designed to deliver the ultimate in portability and durability.

Size and space are never an issue with the GD2000
You can take this rugged, compact computer anywhere. GD2000 measures only 1.8” x 6.6” x 4.8" (45mm x 168mm x 122mm) and weighs as little as 2.4lbs / 1.1kg, yet it provides exceptional ruggedness, full computing power and a choice of I/O and communications options.

Ergonomic design to increase usability and effectiveness of your in-field workforce
So small and light you can carry it in one hand, the GD2000 is easy to use. With a full backlit keyboard, zoom, touchpad, micro-joystick, mouse thumb buttons and direction pad, GD2000 makes on-the-go computing effective with all the features you need to make your job easier.

The GD2000 includes award-winning DynaVue® display technology for maximum viewability in bright daylight conditions without the intense battery consumption of other ruggedized LCD screen technologies.

Computing performance to keep a mobile worker productive
Don’t let the small size fool you. The GD2000 provides high-performance computing including an energy-efficient 1.2 Ghz Intel® processor, delivering full-sized notebook compute power. Enhanced graphics and 3D rendering performance make this device ideal for applications such as field communications, situational awareness, paperless metering and ticketing, and other transactional applications. With full Windows® 7 Professional, IT departments can easily integrate the GD2000 into their office and field environments.

Paratrooper Proven - Survives punishing drops, vibration and temperature extremes
The lives and jobs of military personnel, law enforcement officers, firefighters, and utility workers depend on reliable solutions that operate in extreme conditions. Built for the most demanding environments, the GD2000 withstands accidental drops, extreme temperatures, heavy vibrations, blowing rain, sand and dust, humidity, altitude, acoustic noise, fungus, direct sunlight, and many other conditions. The fully-rugged GD2000 easily handles the extremes of the desert heat and arctic winters.

GD2000 is rated IP54 for dust and water intrusion and meets or exceeds MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461F, UL1604 and is compliant with the daylight visibility requirements of MIL-STD-3009 specifications. Built to last, the GD2000 comes with a standard 3-year warranty, extended warranty available.

Modular options to deliver full solutions your mobile workers need
For your customized computing needs, the GD2000 has a unique optional expansion "slice" architecture that offers the ability to easily add peripherals to support in-field applications. The slice modules give you additional I/O ports such as USBs, PC Card, Ethernet or a min-office dock, without compromising the ruggedness of the GD2000.

Communication choices for optimal mobility and productivity in the field
Keeping you connected for ultimate mobility and productivity, the GD2000 offers multiple wireless options including WLAN 802.11a/b/g/n, PAN, and Bluetooth® . The integrated Quadrafilar-helix GPS antenna allows for a broader range of satellite coverage in the field, and when combined with the SIRFstar III GPS, the GD2000 delivers superior results where it counts.

For the heaviest communications needs, the GD2000 can run up to 3 RF modems and a GPS receiver at one time, providing exceptional wireless performance and superior wireless power management.

Unmatched data and asset security
Ensure data and asset protection with multiple security features including a fingerprint reader, BIOS-level passwords, stealth mode keyboard and display settings for secure environments, TPM 1.2 and an optional Smartcard.

Trusted General Dynamics Itronix Warranty and Service
Built to last, the GD2000 comes with a standard 3-year warranty. Plus enterprise customers can choose from a comprehensive suite of support levels including extra options like Mobile Help Desk.
