Lockheed contracted with CP Technologies to design and manufacture an LCD/Keyboard combination for use aboard nuclear submarines. The principle use is for officers to be able to connect to both the secure and non-secure systems from their quarters.
Included is a 17″ TFT LCD, full feature keyboard and glidepoint mouse device and two USB ports. Mounted inside is an Icron USB hub extender allowing the keyboard, glidepoint, and two USB ports to interface via Cat-5 cable with a server anywhere on the boat. The challenging specification included footprint and size constraints and a weight limit of 18lbs. CP Technologies delivered a system weighing only 12lbs much to the delight of the customer.
