Products That Pass The Marines Test

The Armed Forces of the United States have a very discerning sense of quality. If the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marines say that a product is tried and true, has successfully stood up to the harshest of conditions, and holds the same type of quality standards that the Armed Forces hold, than it is good enough for them.

Fastwel has a history of testing its products to the same rigid guidelines held by the Armed Forces for a very good reason: Fastwel is a large provider of embedded applications, single board computers, and other products to the Armed Forces themselves. Each one of Fastwel's numerous products have been tested to be able to handle the same sort of harsh field conditions as our troops that are serving in war zones (Tests include protection from bomb blasts and incendiary devices). In fact, Fastwel tests their own computer cards and boards more heavily than any other manufacturer of computers and computer hardware. What results is a product that has been proven to withstand the test of time (and machine gun fire), that is durable enough for the U.S. Military, but available to the public.
