Panasonic has launched the Toughbook N1 Tactical, a rugged handheld mobile device built to be officer-worn. The mobile device complements other mobile solutions in the Toughbook family, ranging from 7-inch tablets in the hands of a squad leader, to 10-inch tablets mounted in vehicles, to 12 to 14-inch laptops for use in a tactical operations center.
The Toughbook N1 Tactical is rugged-built to MIL-STD-810G standards and designed to withstand extreme environments, including rain, dust, and extreme temperatures. The device features a 500 NIT daylight readable HD display with a rain-sensing mode that allows search and rescue teams or law enforcement officers to use the device in the rain without the raindrops activating the screen. Additionally, the glove touch mode ensures the screen can be read and manipulated in all conditions.
NIAP-certified, the Toughbook N1 Tactical is the defense and public safety solution for improved situational awareness and enhanced operational resilience.
The Toughbook N1 Tactical is purpose-built for the following sectors and agencies:
- Law enforcement agencies – situational awareness, security detail around large events, location tracking, field-based applications
- State and local government – search and rescue, wildfire management
- Federal Civilian agencies, e.g. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) – situational awareness, improved communications, tactical operations
- Federal civilian agencies, e.g. FEMA – disaster management
- Military – EUD for situational awareness
The Toughbook N1 Tactical is built on an open and secure Android operating system enabling integration with a diverse ecosystem of tactical solution partners. Leveraging SA applications such as ATAK, KILSWITCH, and HC2, law enforcement and military personnel can perform more streamlined planning using GPS and geospatial map data and accessing critical data information that enhances real-time action.
Additionally, Toughbook devices are frequently used for remote navigation such as unmanned aerial system (UAV) solutions. Their reliability and high-performance functionality allow public safety officials to effectively monitor and manage emergencies remotely via live video feeds.
Through collaboration with PAR Government, the Toughbook N1 Tactical features Team Connect – a cloud-based TAK server that reduces internal deployment and administration resources, enabling anytime, anywhere access for more connected teams.
