France: Airbus Defense and Space and American Reliance (AMREL) have joined hands to integrate GATOR (Geospatial Appliance Targeted for Operational Response) into the GATOR Rugged Geospatial Laptop. The GATOR encapsulates geospatial server and gives access to the geospatial data even in the most difficult and demanding areas of the world, where the internet isn’t available.

The GATOR Rugged Geospatial Laptop is built on AMREL’s durable mobile computer platform. AMREL leverages their patented Flexbay technology, providing seamless connectivity between the GATOR module and the rugged laptop. The battle-grade laptop incorporates 30 years of AMREL rugged expertise, and is designed for quick customization and integration.

Data is viewable with an internet browser. The geospatial server GATOR is a useful tool for warfighters, first responders, exploratory crew, researchers, field workers, oil & mining crews, humanitarian/disaster relief, and utility staff.

“Integrating our GATOR appliance into the rugged laptops from AMREL enables us to offer a solution to first responders and field operators from the GEOINT Community who need support in isolated areas,” said Greg Buckman, Head of Airbus Defense and Space’s Intelligence Business activities in North America. “We are excited to see how this complete solution will provide mission-critical intelligence to users on the ground.”

“The GATOR Rugged Geospatial Laptop is an ideal solution for situations where failure’s not an option,” said Linda Talcott, AMREL’s Director of Product Marketing. “It’s a perfect match. GATOR is designed to run mission critical geospatial applications in remote areas, while AMREL’s laptops have proven their ruggedness in the most challenging environments in the world” she added.
