             connected device sends a text-message to the computer. The text-message will only be sent once,
             so the RS232-buffer needs to hold the complete message until the Windows-application reads the

    5 Vehicle Docking System for TabletPC
    The complete system including TabletPC, cables, accessories and docking system must withstand
    expected vibrations and shocks in a terrain vehicle. Describe specification?

    5.1 Mechanical attachment TabletPC
    Drawing below shows the existing vehicle mounting plate. This plate is fixed mounted in the vehicle.
    This plate cannot be changed.

    A new adapter between the TabletPC and this plate must probably be constructed. The new adapter shall
    be easy to mount using the four holes (218x179.5mm) in the existing vehicle plate.

                 TabletPC

                 Adapter                                      Wanted new adapter

                 Existing vehicle plate

    Describe the TabletPC bolt pattern, docking system and how the TabletPC is attached. If possible,
    describe the solution with a drawing.

    FMV is searching information about possible solutions and technology regarding this area. FMV needs
    to know if the vendor can provide a mechanical solution for the attachment.

    5.2 Docking station / connector extension for TabletPC
    In the vehicle, attached to the new adapter, a docking station is needed to make sure all cables are
    connected and that the computer is easy to dock/undock and secure.

    Some vehicle installations need more connectors than others. FMV therefore request information about a
    basic/standard docking station and solutions to attach optional features and cables.

    Docking station's basic minimum requirements are:

                 2 x RS232 (9-pin DSUB)

                 2 x USB version 2.0 (standard A-connector )

                 Power supply (MIL-Connector, Amphenol 62GB-12E08-33PN). MIL-STD-1275

                 LAN (RJ45)

                 Line in/Out (3.5mm)

    Additional requirements are:

                 2 x RS232 (9-pin DSUB) (total of 4 x RS232 ports)

                 2 x RS232 MIL-DTL-38999, Glenair

                 LAN MIL Souriau

                 2 x USB Mil connector Amphenol

                 2 x USB Hirose

                 HMC-Fiber (100MBit) 1310nm.

                 CAN 2.0 A/B (MIL-Connector Amphenol 9-35-22D/TVP00R_D38999_20)

                 Mil grade video in connector (composite), (Glenair, Mighty Mouse 801-011-02 NF7-10FA)

                 GPS External antenna connector, type?

    Describe if this additional requirements are solved by docking station, docking list, cable converters or
    in some other way.
