HP today said it will supply HP EliteBook notebook PCs, HP Elite tablet PCs and HP Compaq Elite desktop PCs to U.S. Navy.
During HP Total Test Process, HP PCs experience 115,000 hours of performance trials. HP EliteBook PCs and HP Elite tablets pass the rigorous MIL-STD 810G testing for vibration, dust, shock, altitude, high temperature, low temperature, temperature shock, humidity and drops.
HP is supplying its PCs as part of an order worth up to $40 million given to Integration Technologies Group.
HP did not share the size of the PC component in this deal.
As part of this project, U.S. Navy is looking at refreshing OCONUS Navy Enterprise Network (ONE-Net), the Navy’s enterprise network of bases outside the continental United States.
HP desktop PCs, displays, notebooks and tablets will replace the current systems at domestic and international bases. ONE-Net provides technical capabilities, such as secure network access, for deployed and support forces at 14 overseas fleet bases and stations in the Far East, the Middle East and Europe.
“Earning the Navy’s business further validates HP’s reputation for superior quality and reliability. In addition this solidifies our commitment to accelerate our rate of innovation in our PC and printing products today and in the future,” said John Solomon, senior vice president, Printing and Personal Systems, and managing director, Americas, HP.
