1000-nit sunlight readable MilPAC Triple Display C4ISR computer
Since 2015 the MilPAC-III has been a powerhouse portable serving the US Navy as part of their C4ISR suite in the combat information center. Now the MILPAC-III 1000-nit display upgrade lets the MILPAC-III come out of the darkened environment of the CIC and into the direct sun without losing display clarity or readability. With new 1000-nit hi-resolution FHD displays that are clearly readable in direct and diffused sunlight, the MILPAC-III can be deployed forward in harsh desert environments that call for extraordinary display capability.
Nominally specified at 1000-nit brightness, the new displays have a contrast ratio in excess of 400:1 while providing deep blacks and extremely bright and readable detail. The 1000-nit displays were tested for maximum brightness and uniformity using a Topcon BM-9 Luminance Meter: Measured maximum white luminance was 1053 nits.
To make sure the upgraded MILPAC-III survives the hottest environments, a new desert filter back can be fitted so the MILPAC-III can survive the temperature extremes found in bright sunlight and desert environments
The MilPAC-III deployable workstation’s is available with a high-capacity filtered cooling system, the DFB (Desert Filter Back). Utilizing a washable electrostatic filter and four high performance fans, the high airflow cooling system allows extended operation in hot, dusty and unpleasant environments. The positive pressure system ensures that contaminants are stopped the filter.
The four fans were selected and tested to perform well as a high-pressure input to the cooling flow. All air entering the MilPAC-III is filtered through the filter-back, and all the other fans exhaust, keeping the interior clean and cool.
The MilPAC-III filter is constructed of multiple layers of custom woven electrostatic polypropylene media, plus non-woven polyester. The triple action filters promote free airflow, and have superior dust holding capacity. Particulates are captured and attracted together electrostatically to form larger clumps. These settled particles are washed out through drain holes during periodic cleaning.
The MilPAC has been designed to work in forward deployed environments and on board ships. It has passed the Mil-Std 901D test for shock in ship-borne applications. This violent test simulates the ship running into a mine, or being torpedoed. After the test (which is usually regarded as destructive) the MilPAC-III powered on without issue.
