This is the first fully rugged solution that allows the end-user to choose what COTS device and operating system they want to use for tactical computing and power management, says Norman Lange, Director of Business Development.

What do Windows and Android Tablets, Smartphones and Laptops all have in common? They don’t always play together well with tactical peripherals, in a battlefield setting!

Today’s budget climate has drawn attention to Windows and Android notepads, tablets and smartphones as “good enough” COTS computing solutions. On paper the cost savings are attractive but it doesn’t address the complex challenges of interoperability and ensuring Situational Awareness on the Battlefield. Coupling the lessons learned from our users on the battlefield with our experience in tactical computing solutions, we’ve created targeting, command and control, and situational awareness solutions that help the end-user leverage and fully exploit their choice of COTS computing technology.

The APEx Predator System provides POWER + DATA which enables communications from tactical radios and peripherals to commercial tablets and computers running both Windows and Android operating systems. The system is designed for multiple mission sets that demand a flexible communications platform and power management solution. It allows for the simultaneous connection of multiple voice, data, video and peripheral devices, and their unique interfaces, back to a COTS computing device using a single USB Interface. You can also run all your gear from one battery, which means reduced weight and simplified logistics. Command and control from a single, simplified solution means enhanced situational awareness.

Coupled with the Black Diamond Forward Air Control-Utility Suite, precision targeting software for Digitally-aided Close Air Support (DACAS) and full digital call for fire, the APEx Predator System is a turn-key hardware/software solution that leverages low-cost COTS computing cores to deliver a precision weapon system.

Black Diamond has made its mark by delivering reliable, wearable, tactical computing solutions that have deployed to various theaters around the world and returned a trusted partner. The missions may be different but our goal remains the same, Situational Awareness you can trust.
