Military-grade devices, particularly handheld devices such as military rugged tablets, must meet a stringent set of specifications that goes well beyond other computers. A rugged embedded computer, defense grade tablet, and other defense grade handheld or portable device must:

  • Operate reliably over widely varying temperatures from desert to arctic environments
  • Resist shocks, drops, impacts, and prolonged vibration
  • Be impervious to damage caused by dust, sand, moisture, and water
  • Resist EMI (electromagnetic interference) and comply with other electronic devices (EMC)
  • Be exceptionally durable and reliable to operate with prolonged life
  • Be viewable in direct sunlight, and often night vision compatible, but undetectable by others in complete darkness
  • Operate with gloved hands
  • Be available for purchase for long periods of time, often 10 years or more
