Our shipping and transport cases and our rackmount cases have been successfully deployed in many applications including: land and air vehicles, mobile hospitals, emergency response units, hazardous material transport, and ground communications. Programs that have strict SWaP (Space, Weight, and Power) budgets benefit from the lighter weight of aluminum and the greater usable space when compared to plastic cases. ZARGES cases have been designed to meet multiple MIL specs including MIL-STD-285 and MIL-STD 810.
