To best serve the US Military, Navy and Coast Guard, rugged military computers and monitors are engineered to withstand extremes of noise, shock, and vibrations and require low-power consumption to increase reliability without the use of an external cooling fan.
Military Ratings and Military Specs
Daisy’s rugged military computers and displays meet a variety of military standards (MIL-STD) that outline the uniformed engineering and technical requirements established by the military (ranging from interface, design, manufacturing and testing standards.
- MIL-STD-167 describes the environmental vibration testing of shipboard equipment and balancing shipboard rotating equipment subjected to internally induced vibration during operation – approved by the US Navy.
- EMI MIL-STD-461E (a combination of MIL-STD-461D and MIL-STD-462) outlines requirements for the control of electromagnetic interference (EMI) emissions and susceptibility characteristics of electronic, electrical, and electromechanical equipment and subsystems designed or procured for use by activities and agencies of the Department of Defense (DoD).
- MIL-STD-810 requires that military equipment’s environmental design and testing was tailored to the conditions that it will experience throughout its service life, and exposed to chamber test methods that replicate the effects of environments on the equipment rather than imitating the environments themselves.
- MIL-S-901D, Grade A Shock and Vibe covers shock testing requirements for ship board machinery, equipment, systems, and structures, excluding submarine pressure hull penetrations – to ensure the equipment can withstand shock loadings, which may be incurred during wartime service due to the effects of nuclear or conventional weapons.
- MIL Standard 740-1 Airborne Noise, more recently updated to MIL Standard 1474E specifies the maximum permissible noise levels produced by military systems and the test requirements for measuring these levels to minimize noise-induced hearing loss, promote personnel safety, permit intelligible speech in noisy environments, and minimize acoustic detection and recognition by the adversary while improving warfighters’ overall performance.
Case Study: Daisy Data’s Military Computers
Daisy Data’s military computer monitors can be found in the US Coast Guard’s Lockheed c-130 aircraft. Our military-grade displays are equipped with our exclusive night-vision imaging system (NVIS) technology, which allows for excellent readability in all degrees of light. These NVIS military displays needed to provide enhanced light/dark readability so the planes’ two-person crews could use onboard digital avionics and sophisticated navigation systems in both daylight and while wearing night vision goggles.
