Getac Launches MX50 - The Must-Have Tablet for Dismounted Soldiers
Getac today unveils its first rugged mobile device designed specifically for the defence sector based on focus group discussions with end users. The MX50 is a 5.7 inch IPS display tablet that offers a consumer device-like experience but packs in more power, robustness, security and functionality required by dismounted soldiers on the battlefield.

Chris Bye, President Getac UK, comments; “there is a trend toward consumer grade mobile devices for use in the military because they’re lightweight and familiar. But these devices are not built to withstand harsh environments, or deliver the power, reliability and functionality today’s soldiers need. With the MX50 we’re delivering the best of both worlds; a rugged device that meets real military needs, that is compact, lightweight, intuitive - perfect for the already overburdened infantryman.”
The MX50 is powered by the latest Intel mobile system on chip (SOC) processor giving, defence personnel high processing speeds and low power consumption so they can quickly view, manipulate and send/receive data, access battlefield applications, disseminate blue and red forces tracking, fire control orders, and mission command information. The device has undergone rigorous testing and is certified to Military Standards 810G and 461G, meeting current, legacy and future GSA standards.
Security is paramount for defence and stringent standards are required for devices to be accepted and used by personnel. The MX50 meets the Common Criteria ISO/IEC 15408 computer security certification, and the NSA’s Commercial Solutions of Classified (CSfC) platform and file encryption data at rest guidelines, which enables commercial components to be used in layered solutions to protect classified national security systems information.
The MX50 is compatible with a large number of IEEE communication protocols, making it interoperable with a range of external hardware and drivers, such as the Glenair connector to provide USB 2.0 and power to the device. The latest Android OS makes it easy for third party applications and soldier systems such as Battle Management Systems (BMS) to be loaded onto the device as required.
The rugged nature of the device means it can withstand drops and other impacts, operate seamlessly in extreme weather conditions - from -21 to +60 degrees Celsius - and EMC environments, and has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 67. The 5.7” IPS display gives a wide viewing area and includes Getac’s signature LumiBond® screen technology for readability in sunlight, and brightness of up to 480 nits. Multi-touch means dismounted soldiers can use glove, touch or and pen modes even in the rain. Rubber directional input buttons on the screen ensure the device can continue to be used even if the screen breaks.
Getac MX50 is also designed to be quickly snapped into a tactical vest check mount. There is also an option to achieve limitless power with Getac’s LifeSupport technology, with an additional snapback hot swappable battery.
