FORT WORTH, Texas, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Israel-based Elbit Systems announced the release of is new ruggedized computer platform designed to support a modern digital battlefield.
Elbit says its Elbit Systems of America subsidiary has launched the company's new Tacter-31D, a rugged dismountable computer platform for military vehicles. Elbit also released its new RD-104 10.4-inch rugged display at the Association of the U.S. Army Winter Symposium in Florida.
Officials say the next-generation computer technologies are designed to address the demands of military units in the field with a latch-release system and a mode to accommodate night-vision goggles, among other advancements.
