Rugged COTS-based devices built to handle any mission

Panasonic TOUGHBOOK is the European market leader for rugged mobile computing.

We’ve worked in partnership with defence organisations for over 20 years to deliver vehicle-mounted and handheld rugged mobile PC solutions for today’s digitally enabled militaries.

Our mission-ready, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) mobile devices are trusted by forces and system integrators around the world. Why? Because they’re tested to the toughest military standards, ensuring durability, reliability and security.

They are built to withstand the harshest of environments, even a battlefield.*

Reporting for rugged duty*

Cost effective and user friendly

At TOUGHBOOK, we’ve developed COTS devices that can be easily and cost-effectively deployed into any organisation across the sector.

Based on defence customer feedback, they look and feel like the commercial systems your soldiers use in civilian life, while maintaining optimum ruggedisation standards. So, upon deployment, your force can get to grips with usability faster.

Undetectable operations

When it’s mission critical that personnel go under the radar, the TOUGHBOOK concealed mode allows all radio and display features to be disabled in less than a second and at the push of a button.

Devices can also be certified to MIL-STD-461H, ensuring they meet strict controls for limited electro-magnetic interference.

Ongoing support

Eliminate the cost and hassle of replacing hardware every few years. Our military-grade products are designed to last for longer and come with a variety of TOUGHBOOK support and warranty options to meet any operational requirement.

Modular customisation and more

Because every user – and organisation – is different, we offer design customisation and software integrations, engineered for the defence sector.

We can also tailor specific accessories. For example, our vehicle docking solutions come with a variety of mounting brackets as standard, but can also be made bulletproof for transportation to and from the battlefield.
