DT Research also equipped its tablet with security tools such as smart card/CAC reader, Trusted Platform Module and media sanitization option that is compliant with National Security Agency and U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy and Army standards.

Daw Tsai, president of DT Research, said the company worked to meet the Army’s durability, computing, connectivity and integrated data capture requirements for rugged tablets.
