To address data security and image transmission vulnerabilities during field operations, new enhancements have debuted on DT Research’s DT311 line of rugged tablet computers: integrated hardware-software encryption capabilities and a secure camera option.
An SD card slot leverages software encryption from Windows 10 IoT Enterprise and TPM 2.0 to secure data. Users can remove sensitive data in an encrypted format to avoid theft and loss of data if the tablet is misplaced or stolen. Rear and front cameras offer software privacy control, while a mechanical privacy shutter can be applied to the rear camera.
Users or the organization’s IT department can shut the camera off in sensitive areas to ensure privacy and security. Additional upgrades include a Skylake CPU for high performance, increased screen brightness for better viewing in sunlight, and a fanless design for increased durability.
Via a contract with Patriot Technologies, the U.S Navy has selected the DT Research DT311 Rugged Tablet to be deployed across various shipyards for use by U.S. Navy personnel.
The decision came after a series of rigorous tests designed to determine whether or not the tablets would provide the technical and physical superiority demanded by military users. Security was a top priority, followed closely by performance, durability, reliability, and usability.
Each purpose-built tablet will be put into use in one of the following verticals:
The DT311 Rugged Tablet is the result of DT Research’s 20-year engineering and design commitment to purpose-built, handheld and mountable devices that incorporate sleek features with functional integration of programs the military relies on for security and safety.
The U.S. Navy depends on this level of technical excellence to improve productivity and increase efficiencies across a range of field-to-office duties. Users will be able to access data and images swiftly and securely in a wide variety of harsh and demanding environments, on a device that is simultaneously rugged and lightweight.
The military grade rugged tablets include a variety of features designed for security and practicality, including:
The DT311 Rugged Tablets are IP65-rated to meet durability and security standards required by the Navy and other branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. These include being MIL-STD-810G & 461F and NIST compliant, HERO certified, and operational in extreme temperatures. Device Guard enterprise hardware and software security features are installed to limit the tablet to trusted applications with TPM 1.2 and 2.0 support.
This contract has been highly anticipated and is one in a series of military contracts, following a recent National Guard decision to deploy DT Research Rugged Tablets.
