Durabook for Military and Defence: Strengthening Security and Tactical Operation


In industries characterised by high risks and potential hazards, it is pivotal to be accompanied by a dependable companion. Here, the term “companion” extends beyond human counterparts – and includes essential tools and equipment that professionals can rely on in challenging environments. Amidst unforeseen circumstances, rugged devices such as the Durabook S15 redefine the standards of performance, mobility, and reliability in the world of commercial rugged laptops.  


1. A Visual Feast with DynaVue Sunlight Readable Display

Featuring a 15.6” Full HD DynaVue sunlight readable display, the S15 serves a visual delight of up to 1,000 nits brightness. The DynaVue technology combats screen glare and reflections effectively, enabling professionals to use their laptops outdoors or in environments where natural light might pose visibility challenges. In addition, the Full HD resolution (1920×1080) of S15 ensures a clear and sharp presentation of every detail to support individuals in viewing visual information and making critical decisions in high-risk settings.


2. Formidable Design: Thin, Light, and Rugged

The S15 weighs 2.6kg and has a profile of 29.5mm, making it incredibly thin and light. Nonetheless, this does not mean that the rugged laptop is less durable. Its IP5X certification offers protection against dust ingress, preventing potential damage to internal components. On top of that, its MIL-STD-810H certification demonstrates the S15’s compliance with military standards and environmental testing, which encompass high and low temperatures, humidity, vibrations, shocks, and other factors. This marks the laptop’s ability to withstand the harshest conditions.


3. Versatility in Data Management and Expandability 

Durabook S15 goes beyond conventional laptop capabilities, especially when it comes to data management and expandability. Here is how the Durabook laptop transcends the typical workstation:


With its ability to accommodate up to three storage drives, the S15 provides ample storage space for users’ data-intensive tasks. The multiple drives enable the efficient organisation and separation of data.

The S15 supports RAID 0 and RAID 1 configurations. RAID 0, known as striping, enhances performance by distributing data across multiple drives. On the other hand, RAID 1, or mirroring, functions by duplicating data across drives. Furthermore, the media bay of S15 may be converted into an ExpressCard 54 slot, offering greater versatility.

The adaptability of Durabook S15 makes customisation possible. For example, inserting another optional dedicated graphics card transforms the model into an ideal solution for graphics rendering, architectural illustrations, and other demanding tasks. Apart from its flexibility, the S15 can be configured with a second RJ-45 and RS-232 port, providing a wider range of connectivity options. In practical terms, having a “2nd RJ-45 port” indicates that the laptop is incorporated with a second Ethernet port, commonly used for wired networking. As such, users find it easier to connect to local area networks (LANs) or other networking devices. Similarly, the “2nd RS-232 port” signifies the presence of a second serial communication port. RS-232 is a serial communication standard commonly used to connect devices like modems, serial printers, and industrial equipment.

Case Study: Military Contractor Leverages Durabook to Withstand Extreme Environmental Conditions

Clarence Fung, a BDAR/Configuration technician, is well aware of the significance of reliable technology in harsh physical situations. His role involves monitoring and maintaining Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles, requiring constant updates in electrical, communications, mechanical, and weaponry systems. Faced with extreme heat, rain, sandstorms, and bright daylight in the Middle East, Clarence initially opted for a custom device from a well-known manufacturer. However, repeated failures led him to seek a more dependable solution – a Durabook semi-rugged laptop. Having witnessed firsthand the device’s resistance to multiple drops and being tossed around from desk to floor and seat to floorboard, Clarence chose to invest in Durabook’s rugged laptops in order to maintain peak performance even during the harshest conditions.
