DRS Tactical Systems, a Finmeccanica company based in Parsippany, N.J., introduced new ARMOR Rugged Tablet Computers.

For instance, the ARMOR X7et and the ARMOR X7ad are multi-touch tablets that come equipped with the Android OS and Microsoft Windows platforms.

The ARMOR X7et, for example, is a Windows-based tablet that weighs just under 1.5 pounds and provides six hours of battery life. It features an Intel Atom Z670 processor and runs Microsoft Windows 7 Professional.

Its Android counterpart, the ARMOR X7ad, weighs 1.3 pounds and operates for up to eight hours. It features a NVIDIA Tegra 2, 1.0Ghz dual core processor and operates on Android v3.2.

Both lightweight tablets feature a 7-inch, outdoor-readable, multi-touch screen display that are certified to MIL-STD 810G for extremes in temperature, vibration, shock and four-foot drops. They have an IP65 rating for ingress protection, which fully protects against dust and withstands low pressure jets of water from all directions.

DRS also offers a convertible tablet, the ARMOR X12kb, what is said to be the lightest convertible tablet in the marketplace that meets MIL-STD-810G. Weighing 5.5 pounds, it features a 12.1-inch, sunlight-readable, swivel touch-screen that incorporates polarized LCD glass and anti-reflective technology. The ARMOR X12kb offers the Intel Core i5-560UMCPU processor and runs Microsoft Windows 7 Professional. It operates for up to eight hours, and features a spill proof keyboard and touchpad. Additionally, the one-click stealth-mode operation disables all emitting light and sounds.
