Commercial computers are generally designed for commercial use and lack industry specification for tactical use, other than the shipping environment. In order to use commercial computers in rugged military tactical environments, appropriate mounting trays and fixtures with vibration isolators must be designed for installation in tactical wheeled and tracked vehicles. This paper describes the vibration test profiles used in testing a commercial computer and monitor, as isolated, to determine the survivability limitations of these components when subjected to simulated tactical wheeled and tracked vehicle vibration environments.
