Aerospace and Defense

In the defense world, electronics must operate every time. The mission is a demanding environment and the products supporting the task shall be up for the challenge. For the better part of two decades, allied forces around the world have relied on our products to consistently deliver exceptional performance. DSE MIL-SPEC systems are designed to meet the most stringent requirements found within MIL-STDs such as 810, 461, 1275, 704, 3009, and DO-160. From freezing temperatures to blowing sand and extreme shock to inconsistent voltage input, DSE products have the credentials to meet the objective.

The 21st century soldier requires interconnected electronics to deliver real time visual, virtual, and diagnostic information across all platforms. Proven product features such as High Definition LCDs, programmable bezel keys, robust communication protocols, vehicular network compatibility, dynamic touch screens, and secure data storage ensure the success of each and every mission

DSE is honored to contribute to the safety of our service men and women
