DT311Y Series Rugged Tablets with Windows® 10 IoT Enterprise Purpose-built for U.S. Naval Shipyards with Partner Akira Technologies

DT Research, the leading designer and manufacturer of purpose-built computing solutions for vertical markets, today announced the company’s third consecutive contract award for the U.S. Naval shipyards. DT Research secured this three-year award with Akira Technologies, a DT Research technology partner. The DT311Y rugged tablets will continue to be deployed at several shipyards on the east coast (Norfolk and Portsmouth), the west coast (Puget Sound), and Hawaii (Pearl Harbor).

“We are proud that our technology continues to meet the needs of the U.S. Navy,” said Daw Tsai, president of DT Research. “Our strong engineering resources allow us to tailor our rugged computing products based on the feedback from valued customers; we listen and create a continuous improvement cycle.”

The DT311Y rugged tablets feature 11.6-inch high-bright capacitive touch screens, Intel Core I series processors, Microsoft® Windows® 10/11 IoT Enterprise operating systems, IP65 rating, and MIL-STD-810G/H and MIL-STD-461F certifications. The built-in smartcard/Common Access card (CAC) reader allows users to instantly access data based on their clearance level, which can be directly read from an existing system.

DT311Y users gain continuous operation through hot-swappable batteries and a range of battery charger accessories, which eliminate downtime as tablets are passed on shift-to-shift. Built-in WiFi and optional 4G LTE/AWS and long-range (1000 ft) BT create a reliable portal for real-time data sharing from almost any location. Optional front and back cameras and an optional 2D barcode scanner streamlines data capture and improves accuracy. DT311Y accessories include a docking keyboard and cradle and mounts for vehicles, forklifts, and VESA arms, which improves ease of use and makes placement flexible.

Robert Droppa, GM of Government Solutions, said, “As DT Research continues to successfully deliver top quality rugged computing to the Navy and other branches of the U.S. military, we remain dedicated to delivering advanced technology that can solve their base management projects and improve data-driven decision making.”
