Rugged Ground Vehicle Computers


Galleon's rugged Ground Vehicle Computer (GVC) is a compact, high-performance platform for your in-vehicle processing applications.

Building on Galleon’s long experience with military computer design, the GVC is designed specifically for vehicle applications and meets the most severe environmental conditions without compromising on functionality or performance. Removable storage with multi-layer encryption ensures fast and secure offload of data.

High performance graphics in combination with multiple gigabit Ethernet ports, CANbus, USB 2.0 and 3.0, Serial Comms, GPIO and audio, makes the GVC ideal for integration with state-of-the-art network centric Battle Management Systems, Situational Awareness vehicle self-protection systems and vetronics applications. It implements full compatibility with the latest military vehicle standards such as VICTORY and GVA.

The GVC is maintenance free and offers reliable computing power at very low lifecycle costs. The flexible architecture allows several Intel Xeon-E processor options ranging from the low power E3-1505Lv6 quad core to the high-performance E-2276ME six-core CPU.

At Galleon Embedded Computing we are proud to test our products to the full extent of MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-461. “Designed to meet” simply isn’t good enough!

Galleon Embedded Computing’s quality management system is certified to Aerospace Standard AS/EN 9100 and ISO 9001.
