GRiD supply Ground Support Equipment to the Tornado GR4, a two-seat, all-weather, day/night attack and reconnaissance aircraft. GRiD recently received a contract to supply new GRiDCASE 1590 Laptops to the RAF in an effort to continue to support Tornado.
The GRiDCASE 1510 is now available with an extended base to allow for the installation of a 2.5" Solid State Drive.
The maximum storage capacity is increased to 1TB for loading vast amounts of information like mapping data.
The drive is removable so that drives can be stored away for security purposes or removed when maintenance is required.
This capability also means the GRiDCASE 1510 is now compatible with ViaSat Eclypt Drives for when encryption is required.
The GRiD 9151U 19" 1U Rackmount Processor has been replaced by the GRiD 9161U.
The GRiD 9161U includes the latest Intel® Core™ Processors which includes the option of PCI Cards or PCI Express Cards for expansion.
As with all GRiD products, the front and rear panel of the product is fully configurable by the user. Whether it is the interfaces required, connector types or type of storage media, GRiD can deliver the exact configuration for you.
We have also moved to a full Stainless Steel chassis benefiting from additional strength, chemical and corrosion resistance and resistance to heat damage as well as an even lower magnetic signature.
Please contact us directly for more information.
GRiD have released a new 13" Laptop to compete with the commercial rugged Laptops in the marketplace on both size and weight whilst maintaining the robustness GRiD have always provided.
The GRiDCASE 1513 has three MiniPCIe slots available for expansion to include an array of additional interfaces you do not find with commercial laptops.
