CodaOctopus Colmek describes its new Stinger 553 rig as "a rugged tactical small form factor PC," but calling it a bomb shelter for your PC hardware would have been just as appropriate. Protected by an aluminum alloy chassis that's both corrosion and splash resistant, CodaOctopus Colmek says it built the Stinger 553 to MIL-STD-810F and MIL-STD-461E environmental standards and MIL-STD0404E power supply voltage standards. That means it can withstand freezing rain, high humidity, gunfire vibration, sand, dust, fungus, and a host of other unpleasantries.
On the inside sits an intel Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, 128GB SSD, and Windows XPe, WinCE, Linux, or VxWorks. Rounding out the spec sheet are 8x USB 2.0 ports, 4x SATA ports, 7x RS-232 serial ports, and more..
