ArgonFDS is proud to offer one of the industry's most comprehensive and innovative selections of rugged display monitors. Our products are recognized worldwide on military land, air, and sea platforms, thanks to their limitless applications.

We continuously innovate and adapt our products to meet customer challenges that others cannot or will not. A recent example of this is when ArgonFDS was tasked with developing a 19" rack mount 21.3" viewable LCD with an LED backlighting system less than 3" deep. We not only met this challenge but exceeded expectations, now offering the lightest weight and highest viewable surface for the 19" rack mount application - the ARD21.

Our standard options, such as Sunlight Readability, NVG Compatibility, Rugged AR Touch Screen, Video Inputs, Bezel Keys, and Cold Start, allow us to quickly customize a unit that perfectly fits your application and installation.

We understand that many of our designs may require qualification testing. As such, we're prepared to provide reports. If similar qualifications can't be established for a model, we're ready to work with you to develop a cost-efficient qualification test program.

At ArgonFDS, we understand that one size does not fit all and every application has unique requirements. We've built our business model around this concept to better serve our customers.
