Defence & Security

Defence, security and military applications demand reliable, rugged and resilient high-performance computing. Steatite’s range of military grade computers delivers dependable solutions for land, sea and air. 

Ruggedised tablets, precise positioning and timing systems, high-performance rack-mount servers & KVMs and high-speed autofocus-zoom cameras are designed and customised by our security-cleared experts and guarantee consistent operation in the harshest environments as well as long-term product availability. 

Our products are robustly built and rigorously tested to meet demanding military standards for shock, vibration, temperature and EMC, including DEF STAN 59-411/MIL STD 461, DEF STAN 00-35/MIL STD 810 and TEMPEST. 

Designed & Tested

Designed & tested to military standards

With in-house design experience of military EMC (DEF STAN 59-411 / MIL STD 461), shock & vibration (DEF STAN 00-35 / MIL STD 810), temperature, and TEMPEST, Steatite military grade computers can help to reduce project timescales and risk.

Engineering controls ensure consistent supply

Component pre-qualification, strict revision controls and detailed build documentation means we can build your system, exactly as you want it, every single time.

Cost effective customisation with low MOQ / NRE

Our diverse selection of COTS military computers means we are often able to take an existing design and modify it to suit the specific requirements of your project, potentially saving significant time and money, while also reducing risk.

Long term 5 to 15 year product availability

With military programmes often requiring support for a decade or longer, selecting suitable hardware at the outset can drastically reduce support costs. With proper planning, Steatite have the potential to supply our military PCs for up to 15 years, with proven reliability and consistency.

Rugged design for use in harsh environments

Our military PCs and PNT systems are designed to work in extreme locations, where they are likely to be subjected to shock, vibration, hot, cold, dust or water, while maintaining a high MTBF.

Project management ensures on-time & on-budget delivery

Our experienced PRINCE2 project management team have years of experience ensuring complex military programmes run smoothly and without any bumps in the road.

Decades of experience designing military systems

Selecting a supplier that has delivered many complex solutions to a wide range of military customers for use in land, sea and air applications, can be the difference between success and failure. We understand how to meet the challenges of military computing.

Security cleared to work on sensitive programmes

With our specialised knowledge and the necessary security controls and procedures in place, along with security cleared personnel, Steatite are well positioned to deliver sensitive programmes.
