DRS Technologies Inc.'s Tactical Systems division has expanded its product portfolio to include the ARMOR X7et and the ARMOR X7ad lightweight tablet computers.

The ARMOR X7et is a Windows-based tablet that weighs just under 1.5 lb (24 oz) and provides six hours of battery life.

It features a NVIDIA Tegra 2, 1.0-Ghz dual-core processor and operates on Android v3.2.

Both lightweight tablets feature a 7-inch (18-cm) outdoor-readable multi-touchscreen display. They are certified to MIL-STD 810G for extremes in temperature, vibration, shock and 4-ft (1.2-m) drops and have an IP65 rating for ingress protection, which means they are fully protected against dust and can withstand low-pressure jets of water from all directions.

Additionally, DRS is now offering a new convertible tablet, the ARMOR X12kb, lightweight convertible tablet that meets MIL-STD-810G. Weighing 5.5 lb (2.5 kg), it features a 12.1-inch (31-cm) sunlight-readable swivel touchscreen that incorporates polarized LCD glass and anti-reflective technology. The ARMOR X12kb offers the Intel Core i5-560UMCPU processor and runs Microsoft Windows 7 Professional. It has a long battery life, operating for up to eight hours, as well as a spill-proof keyboard and touchpad. Additionally, the one-click stealth mode operation disables all emitting light and sounds, a feature that is designed for the unique applications of covert operations.

The three new ARMOR mobile computers include robust connectivity options including Gobi Wireless Broadband, integrated GPS, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth wireless. They are designed to make it easier for workers to use mobile computing, even in rugged environments.
