Panasonic Solutions Company at AUSA 2011
The Walter E. Washington Convention Center overflowed with new vehicles, combat gear and the latest technology for military use at this year’s 236th Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting & Exposition in Washington D.C. Each year, more than 32,000 attendees, including senior leaders from the U.S. Army, Department of Defense (DoD) and Congress participate in this event, making AUSA one of the most popular military conventions in the world. AUSA provides a unique opportunity to showcase defense industry products and services, discover new developments in defense technology and discuss important defense-related issues.
Panasonic Solutions Company (PSC) was among the technology leaders exhibiting at this expansive event. It showcased its newest solution offering, the Panasonic Tactical Video Teleconferencing (VTC) solution, alongside its Toughbook mobile computing product line.
Panasonic’s VTC solution combines the high-definition imaging of a Panasonic plasma or LCD display with Polycom’s HD videoconferencing and JELCO’s custom mobile lift case for a best-in-class mobile product that has significant advantages over rolling cart or wall-mounted VTC installations. This type of mobile technology is ideal for military branches and government agencies engaged in training, mission planning and other situations where communication between personnel on the field and the command center is critical. At AUSA, PSC also showcased other new products, including the Toughbook 53, a semi-rugged computer and the Toughbook H2, a rugged hand-held tablet.
Military technology is one of the fastest growing sectors. We can only imagine what will be showcased in 2012.
