Case Studies

We’ve been very lucky to work on a lot of incredible projects over the years and as much as we’d love to tell you about each and every one of them there are some secrets that have to remain secret. Thankfully we can however show a selection of projects which we have worked on, providing our completely configurable Military Laptops, Tablets and Processors to customers across the globe. These projects are available below, with more being added as and when we are allowed to share them. 

Thales GRiDCASE 2507



Thales selected the GRiDCASE 2507 as the Data Entry Device (DED) for the Lightweight Multiple Launcher (LML) System used by the UK Ministry of Defence.

The GRiDCASE 2507 carries out Built-in Test and performs System Configuration checks for the LML to ensure the system is running at full operational capacity.

Lockheed Martin


Lockheed Martin selected the GRiDCASE 1570 as the Rugged Server for the Warship Electronic Chart Display and Information System (WECDIS) used by the UK Ministry of Defence.

The GRiDCASE 1570 is fully configurable allowing for any connector or interface to be integrated whilst maintaining a very low EMC profile and the ability to withstand the harshest environments.

United States DOD


The US Department of Defense (DoD) selected GRiD Defence Systems to provide laptops for its Guided Missile Launcher Test Set (GMLTS), which is used to test the AGM-88 High-Speed Anti-Radiation Missile (HARM).

Legacy systems were obsolete, and the DoD sought a fully tested MIL-STD-1553 data bus card-carrying computer, selecting the rugged GRiDCASE 1590 15” laptop.

GRiDCASE 2515/30

Small boats and high-speed craft used by the military – an example being rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) – have to survive extreme conditions during operations, including impacts from operating in rough seas and the effects of a corrosive sea environment. Not only does the boat have to be built extremely well, but so too does the computer systems on board.

GRiD supply CGI with Rugged Tablet Computers for this very application.

AIM – a designer and manufacturer of high performance test and simulation modules – sought military-specification rugged computers that would integrate its data bus test modules for military avionics testing.

AIM selected GRiD Defence Systems, and the two companies have now been teaming for over a decade to deliver reliable, high-standard avionics test equipment for aircraft and weapons systems. A great partnership GRiD is proud of.

Leading aerospace engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce sought a laptop to be used by aircraft technicians to set up and test the Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) system for the Adour turbofan aircraft engine. The selected rugged laptop would be required to connect to the engine’s Electronic Engine Controller (EEC).

GRiD was successfully selected by Rolls-Royce to provide the GRiDCASE 1590 15” laptop for this requirement.
