An increasing need for soldiers to transmit data in the field has led to the development of a new mobile computer.
Developed by American Reliance (Amrel), the less than two pound HC-2 is rugged, and can be used for both wearable and handheld applications.
The computer, introduced at the LandWarNet 2009 conference, has an Intel Atom processor and Windows XP operating system with 128GB of solid-state storage. It can fit into a cargo pocket or be decreased to be wearable.
HC-2 can be integrated to small applications, including biometrics, data collection, sensor monitoring and battlefield medical diagnostics, and can be used for multiple tasks. It can also be connected to military radios and is fully compliant to MIL-STD 810F standards.
The HC-2 is part of Amrel’s adaptable mobile computer product line, FLEX.
