DDG-1000 Shipboard Handheld COMMS

Most people know AMREL for its rugged mobile computers, but did you know that over 80% of the products that we sell are customized? Not only that but we are the only rugged solution provider that extends manufacturer’s guarantees to modifications and routinely customizes low volume orders at low-to-no NRE.

This month we begin a new blog feature that will highlight interesting customizations.  Our first customization to be spotlighted is a handheld communication device that we developed for the futuristic DDG-1000 destroyer. Supplying mission-critical equipment for marine environments presents very specific challenges, such as the ability to withstand salt fog and extreme humidity.  In this instance, special requirements, such as push-to-talk functionality, also had to be met.
