For the defence specialist
Panasonic TOUGHBOOK is the european market leader for rugged notebooks and tablets.
For over 20 years, TOUGHBOOK has been working with the biggest names in utilities, including Centrica, E.ON, UK Power Networks, GRTgaz and EDF, among others.
From day one, we’ve understood the need for built-for-purpose, work-anywhere devices, developing products that meet – and surpass – the specific demands of the industry.
With this approach, along with our experience of the evolving technology in the sector, we’re able to create the perfect partnership between user and device.
Rugged COTS-based devices built to handle any mission
Panasonic TOUGHBOOK is the European market leader for rugged mobile computing.
We’ve worked in partnership with defence organisations for over 20 years to deliver vehicle-mounted and handheld rugged mobile PC solutions for today’s digitally enabled militaries.
Our mission-ready, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) mobile devices are trusted by forces and system integrators around the world. Why? Because they’re tested to the toughest military standards, ensuring durability, reliability and security.
Designed to perform effectively in even the most hostile of environments, TOUGHBOOK mobile PCs, tablets and handhelds meet the strictest requirements for protection against drops, vibrations, sand, dust, rain, altitude, temperature extremes and more. And our military-grade offerings are certified to MIL-STD-810H standards.
What does this mean for your organisation?
Cost effective and user friendly
At TOUGHBOOK, we’ve developed COTS devices that can be easily and cost-effectively deployed into any organisation across the sector.
Based on defence customer feedback, they look and feel like the commercial systems your soldiers use in civilian life, while maintaining optimum ruggedisation standards. So, upon deployment, your force can get to grips with usability faster.
Ultra-portable accessories that don’t compromise on toughness – or security. TOUGHBOOK engineers devices for defence with removable solid-state drives (SSDs) to guarantee that whatever happens to the unit during operations, there’s no risk of losing highly-sensitive data. Additionally, Military Standard MIL-DTL-38999 ports can be added for strong and secure connections without any risk of leads falling out or coming loose.
Stay connected on the move
The ‘connected vehicle’ is a central pillar of business today. Giving utilities engineers technology and in-vehicle equipment that’s durable and optimises connectivity, even when they’re travelling, is essential to remaining competitive.
TOUGHBOOK delivers everything you need to take your office on the road.
• Instant access to real-time information
• Digital documentation on the go – e.g. manuals, service history or spare-part information
• World-class navigation tools and job schedule updates
• Unrivalled data-sharing abilities directly from the vehicle environment
• Access to power, whether on the road or on-site
When it’s mission critical that personnel go under the radar, the TOUGHBOOK concealed mode allows all radio and display features to be disabled in less than a second and at the push of a button.
Devices can also be certified to MIL-STD-461H, ensuring they meet strict controls for limited electro-magnetic interference.
Eliminate the cost and hassle of replacing hardware every few years. Our military-grade products are designed to last for longer and come with a variety of TOUGHBOOK support and warranty options to meet any operational requirement.
Modular customisation and more
Because every user – and organisation – is different, we offer design customisation and software integrations, engineered for the defence sector.
We can also tailor specific accessories. For example, our vehicle docking solutions come with a variety of mounting brackets as standard, but can also be made bulletproof for transportation to and from the battlefield.
