Military Deployable Cases - Communication & Information Systems

“The bespoke, rugged case design
was integrated with the customer’s equipment to enable the rapid deployment of land, sea and air-based communication systems. 5 case designs have been developed, each providing different levels of functionality to the user.”

Peter Drake, Business Development Director

This customer is a world leader in secure communications solutions, focused on delivering the right technology to meet required operational needs.

The Challenges:

  • Integrate communication equipment into deployable, rugged cases
  • Develop a family of designs to support the required functionality
  • Compliant with SDIP 27 TEMPEST Level C specification
  • Designed to meet DEF STAN 0035 shock and vibration defence standard
  • Required to integrate high-performance computing and customer’s equipment stack
  • Operating temperature range of -10°C to +30°C
  • Work in collaboration with the customer’s engineering team, ensuring full compliance to specification

The Solution

  • Selected a NATO approved, stackable, lightweight, rugged case with an internal equipment frame
  • Designed a bespoke patch panel for external equipment connectivity
  • Operating temperature performance was optimised with the inclusion of an Environmental Control Unit to support a temperature range from -32°C to +49°C
  • Designed to comply to TEMPEST SDIP 27 Level C and DEF STAN 0035 shock and vibration, with full testing at TUV
  • Completion of documentation pack to support standardisation of build and serviceability in the field

The Outcome

  • Provision of deployable, complex, powerful IT solutions to support military command and control installations
  • Captec were able to design, manufacture and complete testing pre-delivery
  • Successful integration of customer’s equipment delivering the required 5 variants
  • Solution designed for rapid deployment and field integration
  • High powered computing configured for complex, virtual and cloud-based services
