DRS Technologies has expanded its Tactical Systems computer product line to include the Armor X7et and Armor X7ad—lightweight 7-in. multi-touch tablets that allow the customer to choose between the Android or Microsoft Windows OS. The Armor X7et weighs less than 1.5 lb and provides six hours of battery life. It features an Intel Atom Z670 processor and runs Microsoft Windows 7 Professional. Its Android counterpart, the X7ad, weighs 1.3 lb and operates for up to eight hours. It features a NVIDIA Tegra 2, 1-Ghz dual-core processor and operates on Android v3.2. Both tablets have a 7-in. outdoor-readable, multi-touch screen display, are certified to MIL-STD 810G for extremes in temperature, vibration, shock and four-foot drops and have an IP65 rating for ingress protection, which means they are fully protected against dust and can withstand low pressure water spray from all directions. Both computers also offer connectivity options that include Gobi wireless broadband, integrated GPS, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth wireless. www.drsarmor.com
