Major Customers Using the Product:

  • Boeing Aerospace uses Rough Rider I due to the 4 serial ports capability.
  • US Navy
  • US Air Force
  • US Geological Survey ("On April 1-3, 2000, between 5 and 6 inches of rain fell in parts of Madison County, Alabama. These rains caused the Tennessee River to rise out of its banks and spill out across thousands of acres of flood plain. Obtaining flow data during this event was crucial. Two months earlier, we had purchased a Rough Rider I rugged laptop. With this laptop, we were able to collect the data we needed from a boat while bouncing off of 3 feet waves, in currents of 8 feet/second, and in heavy rainfall. The laptop weathered the storm and the turbulent conditions and was a great asset in our data collection effort.")
  • US Coast Guard uses Rough Rider II on their boats to monitor the movement of the hurricanes and storms.
  • Kansas Health & Environmental Department ("The daylight readability of the display for this unit is good. The Rough Rider I also passed our low temperature operational testing (i.e., booting up and operating in a top-loading freezer following storage overnight at approximately 5F".)
