AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), manufacturer of the most powerful, longest-lasting, ultra and fully-rugged tablets, announced today that it received a multi-million dollar purchase order for its iX104C5 M1 ultra-rugged Windows tablets as part of an ongoing military program that utilizes the tablets for field data collection. This purchase order follows previous orders for iX104C5 M1 ultra-rugged Windows tablets from the same customer.
“We are pleased to announce this latest order supporting a multi-agency program,” said Philip S. Sassower, Xplore’s chairman and CEO. “Our ultra-rugged iX104C5 M1 tablet computer was selected for use as a ground control station for a military field data collection application because of its combination of processing power, ruggedization and security features.”
The iX104C5 M1 is certified MIL-STD-810G, rated dust and waterproof (IP67), and can withstand repeated seven-foot drops. The tablet comes with Intel’s Core i7 processor and features a sunlight readable display that is easy to read in direct sunlight, paired with glove-touch technology that provides full functionality when the screen is wet or dirty.
“This order is the latest in a series of purchase orders from this U.S. military program involving the delivery of several thousand devices for use in an important field program where conditions can be harsh and unforgiving,” said Mark Holleran, Xplore’s president and chief operating officer. “We believe Xplore’s ultra-rugged tablet solution is the best tablet for use in military deployments - whether supporting special operations, managing workflows on the flight line or delivering real-time data to mobile field units.”
