Custom build computers, syncronous serial, data acquisition and military grade displays. Industrial products for military applications.

Industrial products for defence applications

What we offer
Over the years we have built hundreds of computer systems for Defence and Security OEMs and System Integrators. We offer a range of custom build computers that can be entirely specified and tailored by our customers giving a perfect fit to project specifications for not only electrical and computing characteristics but also for environmental extremes. We also offer a range of data communication products and peripherals perfectly suited to this market but as no two projects are the same, talk to one of our technical sales team to find out more.

Featured Case study
Specialist computing platform for leading UAV OEM
Fanless Embedded Box...
Our customer in the Defence & Security industry required a light and small form factor box PC for guidance systems of unmanned vehicles, rugged enough to withstand shock and vibration. As the unmanned vehicles are often battery powered, low power consumption and weight were required to allow a saving in efficiency, ultimately leading to longer service time per mission.
Featured Case study
Compact embedded boards help manage high-definition imagery for UAV detection equipment
Our customer in the Defence and Security sector manufacture UAV detection equipment to identify moving targets in remote locations prone to extreme high temperatures. High definition 4k video images from these UAV detection units are streamed back to base allowing data analysts to determine whether the targets would need to be neutralised.
Featured Case study
High-quality embedded hardware powers body scanners for the Global Security market
Technology manufacturers are facing increasing pressure to improve global security systems by developing innovative solutions that address the sensitive nature of public safety.
Featured Case study
Providing cost effective interoperability between tactical radios in a military environment
The requirement of the project was to provide an interoperability between tactical radios in a military environment previously not achievable due to limitations of hardware and budget constraints.
Featured Case study
Single rack-mount computer aids multi UAV control server for aerial site intelligence application
Rack mount PCs
Our customer, a leading manufacturer in the defence and security sector, required a single rack-mount chassis to house four separate computers, each with high performance system architectures, specific connectivity requirements and redundancy options designed as a multi UAV control server for an aerial site intelligence application.

The difference between synchronous and asynchronous communication
v.35 Synchronous Ser...
Here at Impulse we offer a wide range of serial communication boards and adapters; spanning across PCI, PCI-Express, ISA, PC/104 and PCMCIA buses, with communication interfaces including RS-232, RS-485, RS-422 and RS-530. When you first delve into the world of serial communication it can be daunting – phrases such as parity bits, handshakes, clock signals and UART mean nothing to a begin...
Featured Case study
Custom rack PC designed to run specialist military simulation software
The requirement of this project was to design and build a number of custom rack-mount systems that were capable of running specialist military simulation software.
