Challenges Create Opportunities to Innovate


We are constantly innovating with our range and offerings as customers bring us challenges that others cannot or will not meet. For example, some years ago, we were challenged to develop a 19″ rack mount 21.3″ viewable LCD with an LED backlighting system – and extremely high EMI performance – that is less than 3″ deep.



The ArgonFDS team met and exceeded that challenge and we have since offered the lightest weight and highest viewable surface for a 19″ rack mount application for the last 7 years – the ARD21, our 21.3” rugged display monitor.

Proven Options for Your Unique Application

With proven standard options such as Sunlight Readability, NVG Compatibility, Rugged AR Touch Screen, Multiple Video Inputs, Bezel Keys, and Cold Start to name a few, ArgonFDS has an existing library of designs to quickly bring you a customized unit that perfectly meets your unique application and installation.

Rigorous Qualification Testing

Many of our configurations have undergone full suites of qualification testing, both environmental and EMI, and we are happy to provide reports. As a result, qualification by similarity is typically acceptable for many variations of a qualified model, saving the customer time and money. If a case for similarity cannot be made, we will work with you to develop a qualification test program that is cost-efficient.


Built to Serve You Better

At the Spectra family of companies, we know that the “One Size Fits All” approach does not meet the needs of every defense program and platform. Nearly every application has its unique needs or requirements. We understand this and have built a business model to support this concept to better serve the customer base.
