iDirect Government, a provider of satellite communications to the military and government, has unveiled its 9050 OM ruggedized satellite router. The 9050 OM features enhanced security, military environmental standards and improved functionality in a ruggedized form factor for operation in harsh outdoor environments.

A 950mp integrated satellite router board resides at the heart of the 9050 OM, which protects the board from the elements including blowing rain or dusty conditions.

Powered by Evolution 4.2 software, the 9050 OM can operate in harsh environments at temperatures ranging from minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit to 131 degrees Fahrenheit. While en route to a mission, the 9050 OM can survive a parachute jump from 25,000 feet, or be submerged in water, and still operate once it reaches its final destination.
