Program offers unprecedented level of assurance that new rugged computer systems will work successfully when deployed across the customers enterprise

General Dynamics Itronix introduces the new GDAssure Solution Validation and Installation Certification Program that evaluates and certifies that a customers rugged computer, software and peripherals operate as they are intended in a simulated day-to-day operating environment. The GDAssure program reduces the time and costs associated with a computer system that, once installed, fails to operate correctly.

The program assembles a team of engineers, system architects and others who test and evaluate various aspects of a systems configuration and performance. An analysis might include the evaluation of wireless accessories including printers, bar code scanners, GPS modules, operating software and mounting hardware for vehicle installations. Testing can also incorporate vibration, shock, drop, extreme operating temperatures and other tests based on a systems configuration and operating environment. The final analysis documents the components that worked as intended and those that need to be re-evaluated.

This program is useful to a wide range of government, public safety, utilities, transportation and other organizations that expect their computer-based systems to successfully and efficiently operate across the enterprise, with minimal impact on their day-to-day operations, said Frank Romeo, solutions & services marketing manager for General Dynamics Itronix.

The GDAssure Solution Validation and Installation Certification Program is available as part of a sales contract and takes from 60 to 90 days to complete.
