Technology is not keeping up with speed of operations. Today’s conflict zones are not static, and opposition tactics and capabilities often differ substantially from your own, leading to irregular or asymmetric warfare. Armed forces need to be dynamic and agile to respond to these threats. Leveraging modern mobile solutions to enhance the productivity and deployment speed of armed forces represents a critical requirement.
A critical issue moving forward will be greater standardization around key technologies and in particular applications. Primary limitations have been poor performance in challenging environments and also the need to have apps that do not need to be reverse engineered when joint operations are conducted. Modern militaries are looking to move beyond V-SAT to a lightweight, high-bandwidth, easy-to-power solution.

Today's commanders need accurate intelligence to make the most informed real-time, mission-critical field decisions. Getac computers are fully configurable with military data interfaces and encrypted communication, enabling tactical strategists to thwart threats from enemy forces and direct operation plans.
Situational awareness is an absolute necessity. Enabled by an integrated web of networks, servers, storage devices, and analysis and management software, commanders can gather data, analyze it and share it instantly, anytime and anywhere, up and down the chain of command.
Military mission planners have to consider weapons, food, fuel, maneuvers, tactics, and countless other factors in complex operations. Mission planning is automated through the development of common components and software that can be shared across all platforms, including aircraft, smart munitions, and some ground vehicles.
Logistics are the basis for the planning and execution of ground and aviation logistic support for marine, air and ground task force (MAGTF) operations at the tactical level. In a crisis, these assets need to be ready for immediate deployment.
MIL-STD-810G certified Getac mobile computers provide forces with asset management, military vehicle maintenance, and tactical logistics support that ensure troops and their support structures are in a constant state of readiness.
Getac’s training solutions help military customers build and maintain a world-class force. From soldiers and transport technicians to commanders at every level, we train specialists for high-consequence, high-risk tasks, delivering proven, responsive training while ensuring the highest levels of readiness with vastly reduced costs.
Tactical communications are critical to keeping defense and relief forces securely connected. Getac devices link field forces back to the command post. Combined with a satellite tracking system, Getac MIL-461F certified devices enable ground forces to track and communicate with individual vehicles on the frontline.
Deployable medical forces use mobile solutions to gain quick, accurate access to patient histories and forward casualty resuscitation information. Additional key requirements and capabilities are automated tools facilitating patient and item tracking, blood management, medical reporting and medical logistics support.
Getac computers are used as a given platform’s diagnostic processor, gathering and storing critical data from multiple air, land and sea sources. Downloading, storing and analyzing this important data quickly and securely and converting it into actionable information gives Command and Control the edge in conflict situations.
“The notebook was on the dashboard, so it actually saved one of us from injury or death... and the notebook was still operational.”
Rugged mobile computing that delivers precision, accuracy, and reliability.
Getac has over 28 years of rugged innovation in the defence industry, with USD 729M sales revenue. A key subsidiary of MiTac-Synnex group, Getac focuses on reducing, Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) on all of its devices, providing end users with cost-effective Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) solutions.
We practice strict product lifecycle management to fulfill product verifications, minimizing the number of system platform changes and control migration to new generations. The emphasis is on establishing a clear, long-term roadmap and gradually integrating, and migrating to, new technologies avoiding unnecessary technical redundancies.
Customers seeking the best in rugged computing technology are choosing Getac because of our commitment to customer satisfaction. Getac devices have one of the lowest failure rates in the industry and because of that we offer our 3 year Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty including accidental damage cover as standard.*
We offer complete system integration such as firmware and software setup to fulfill military security requirements. Bespoke solutions include Custom BIOS settings, military-camouflage color requirements, incorporation and installation of military connectors and legacy interfaces, asset tagging, logo badge and ID customizations.
Our mission-critical Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) computing solutions deliver high powered processing and reliability in operational environments. This fit for purpose (FFP) Windows and Android hardware enables the stable running of Command, Control, Communication, Computer and Intelligence (C4I) and Technical Publication Documentation (Tech Pubs) applications in operational environments, where downtime can have an unacceptable impact on operational effectiveness.
Getac products are manufactured and certified to the strictest sector standards – MIL-STD 810G and MIL-STD 461F. All provide full integration with our mechanical hardware, software, optical and RF engineers and are comprised entirely of independently verified and tested components.
Getac works with leading partners in Defence to support your needs and requirements. We listen to our customers and deliver through our partners.
Red Cross 186 is a National Society with over 139,000 active members and 11 deployment centers in Italy. They need reliable rugged computing for first aid, handling command and control functions and screens that display images of what is going on outside wherever they are deployed. With Getac F110 fully rugged tablets and S400 semi-rugged notebooks, Red Cross is able to connect to the internet via satellite links, use Wi-Fi on PCs in the command and control room and also share internet connection to the surrounding areas. Getac rugged solutions provide the team with real-time communication by connecting to the command center for making the best decisions in emergency situation. It enables higher mobility and efficiency in critical operations.
Updating Legacy Technology
The United States Air Force requires careful handling,storing and transporting of munitions. However,stringent electromagnetic radiation rules inhibit the use of wireless technology near electrically initiated devices and explosives. USAF Master Sergeant Zeshan Meer worked with Getac to customize the F110 to the military’s specs, finally updating a decade of legacy technology.
With ViaSat HDD options and Cryptify compatible tablets, our GetacSecure range really protects your data. Data security is further ensured through FIPS-140-2 compliance. A common data security requirement for the US, it is also fully recognized by the EU.
FOD (Foreign Object Debris) protection is designed primarily for flight line management operations. This unique sealing system prevents any loose screws or other debris from devices falling into aircraft engines.
We use an internationally recognized, independent research, engineering and evaluation laboratory to certify that our products meet or exceed the MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461F and IP ratings. The result is a trusted endorsement that our products will keep performing in the most challenging conditions.
