Abstract
Ruggedized electronics can be costly; utilizing commercial-grade hand-held computing/communication device and combining with well-designed case can provide ruggedization (impact, temperature, moisture) and extend capabilities such as integrated inclusion of smartcard/CAC readers, biometrics, and advanced barcode scanners. This program will determine the requirements for ruggedizing a device and use those requirements as inputs into a case design leveraging COTS gear. Phase I will result in an early prototype providing fit/function and preparation for improved production. Phase I will also plan for testing, certification, and integration into DHS workflows. The end system provides first responders with integrated, consistent platform for response coordination and management.
