Why is ruggedization important?

Connectivity across devices has grown significantly in recent years. Key players in the defense space can expect more accurate data collection, and mission effectiveness, while maintaining a high level of safety and security. This increase in connectivity also ensures research is more equipped to take place remotely and, in the field.

However, these applications and devices face significant challenges in harsh and demanding environmental conditions. Many Defense based applications are required to perform in all conditions, withstanding significant: altitudes, temperature ranges, exposure to liquid, shock and vibration and other environmental challenges like salt fog. When failure is simply not an option, devices and technologies must have the right level of development and protection to deliver under all conditions. This need for enhanced reliability is apparent when you consider the nature of many defense applications. Take a fixed or rotary wing aircraft’s Radar system for instance, although it is not pivotal for the operation of the aircraft, it requires a high level of reliability to ensure safety for the pilot and vehicle.
