AUSA 2023, WASHINGTON, DC, October 9, 2023—General Micro Systems (GMS) this week will showcase an innovation that reinvents the rugged display using open standard Thunderbolt™ 4 technology. The X9 Spider Rugged Thunderbolt Display, the market’s lightest 1-inch thin, mobile-ready multi-touch display, is available today in 12-, 17-, 24- or 36-inch sizes, in standard and high definition. Using Thunderbolt 4 technology developed by Apple® and Intel® allows the display to be connected via an ultra-thin single copper or fiber optic cable of up to 50m, which also powers the display and all its functions. The display can be daisy-chained to expand to multiple independent displays, while acting as an additional peripheral to the main host computer by adding COTS M.2 add-on I/O such as a Software Defined Radio (SDR) or GPS, or replaceable SSD storage device.

The X9 Spider Rugged Thunderbolt Display allows military and commercial system designers to reimagine the display as more than just an output device. For the 12- and 17-inch versions, the displays can function as portable “manpack” tablets that can be used by dismounted Soldiers/Marines or first responders. Patented GMS LightBolt™ cables using Thunderbolt 4 technology provide incredible freedom to use the display separately, but remotely connected to the host computer, which can be in a hand-held Molle backpack or on a stationary vehicle. Mobile features include an optional wide-angle camera for F2F conferencing between front-line troops and the Forward Operating Base (FOB) and versions with lightweight carbon fiber frames for easy hand-holding. Carbon fiber provides superior and even cooling and is one-fifth (80 percent less) the weight of metal displays. Additionally, the X9 Spider Rugged Thunderbolt Display costs about $10,000, less than a third of the price of competing displays.
