When Tough Isn't Enough

Rugged Defined   

General Dynamics Itronix has been designing and building rugged mobile computing devices for over 25 years.  It’s our primary business; listening to customers and driving Real-World Rugged Products and the services to support tough customers. For the
long-haul. Your environment is demanding. Your team deserves quality products that will enable them to do their work everyday.

We offer varying levels of ruggedness to ensure that our products will meet your expectations. Our products are meticulously tested throughout the development process, piloted by partners and customers, and validated to meet rugged test methods by Independent third party labs. No other organization offers the range of rugged products tested to meet both environmental specifications and security platforms.

Testing for the Real World

Rugged computers go where you go.

And you go from the peaks of frigid mountains to the baking heat of barren deserts to the humid rain forest; you travel there by land, air and sea over challenging terrain.

General Dynamics Itronix computers are tested in the lab, simulating these environments, to ensure they will meet your rugged needs.
