Defense Rugged Displays Checklist

Here are some important elements you need to look out for in a rugged defense display.                                                                 

LED Backlights

In daytime lighting settings, an LED backlight offers improved illumination that ensures perfect visibility and balances intense illumination. Backlights are used in low light conditions to help increase readability. The LED monitor uses light-emitting diodes for the backlight. An LED backlight is very important because it affects the quality of an image.

PCAP Touchscreen

Projected Capacitive Touchscreen (PCAP) is an advanced touchscreen with specialized coatings and films for increased optical performance, making them ideal for industrial or commercial applications. The use of PCAP, the newest touch sensor technology, has improved and aided in the evolution of devices. It has a touchscreen with a high resolution, quick response time, and an intuitive interface.

NVIS Support (Night Vision Imaging System)

NVIS is designed to enhance safe night missions. Every display used by the military has to be visible and dependable at night. NVIS is required for use in military applications. When interpreting light into objects that are far away and that you normally can’t see with your eyes alone, you can rely on NVIS.

Must Comply with MIL-STD (Defense Standard)

Military Standard (MIL-STD) is a set of environmental tests performed on rugged military materials under various harsh climatic and dynamic circumstances, including intense heat and cold. This is to ensure every military product meets the requirements for being field-ready.

Defense LCD Display Certifications and Requirements

Our military displays meet every requirement that makes them fit for field use such as:

IEC609945 Standards

Our defense monitors are made in accordance with IEC609945 standards, which means that they adhere to the International Electrotechnical Commission’s requirements for electrical, labelling, performance, and test procedures for electrical and electronic devices.

IP67/68 Rating

Our displays meet the IP rating, indicating that all our products satisfy waterproofness, dust, and water resistance requirements. This standard is established by the Ingress Protection Code (IP Code) IEC standard 60529. Each finished product is put through testing to see if the material is resistant to moisture and other raw materials like sand and dust before it can be approved for use. 


Every rugged display goes through the MIL-STD which is majorly designed for the military. The U.S Department of Defense employs MIL-STD810 to achieve its predetermined goals. This is done to make sure that every product complies with the standards necessary to qualify as a military-grade.
