Featured Products

Rugged Displays

Fully sealed display systems that are designed, built, and tested for the most extreme environments. Built with the most extreme environments in mind, DSE rugged displays deliver unmatched performance and endless customization options for every application. A rugged display is so much more than an LCD. Circuit boards are over-engineered, milled aluminum enclosures are hardened, software is redundant, and assembly is strict. From concept to qualification testing and full-rate production to configuration management, DSE designs and manufactures every subassembly to perform under stress.

Network Switches, Video Hubs & Man-Machine Controllers

In today’s digital age, electronic devices must easily integrate into the larger system to deliver comprehensive data to the user. DSE’s man-machine controllers, network switches, and video hubs eliminate the need for additional components and centralize data to be shared amongst the vehicle, fleet, or manufacturing floor. By providing flexibility through remote programming, user preferences, and custom software applications, these devices truly allow for a scalable system based on the use case. 

Intelligent Displays

Fully sealed display and computer systems designed, built, and tested for the most extreme environments. Optical performance meets computing processing power in DSE’s series of Intelligent Displays. These rugged systems are designed to not only withstand extreme environments but also to interpret, record, and communicate with the most advanced systems in today’s cutting-edge fleet

Embedded DVR Systems

Fully sealed display systems that are designed, built, and tested for the most extreme environments. Advancements in modern militaries have driven a need to capture mission-critical data. DSE’s products incorporate Solid State Drives to record incoming video to either be reviewed in-vehicle or distributed to commanding officers for operational review.
