Lizard® RW11 - A Laptop-Server for rapid missions!


Fast strike forces – whether from military, disaster- , rescue- and emergency teams – rarely come across on available or working IT- infrastructure at the place of action for setting up a network to control individual squads and store big data.

Mobile rugged Laptop-Server Lizard® RW11 with mission modules (here 1x fibre-Switch and 1x RJ45-Switch)

equivalent (stationary) conventional Server-solution

For such a high mobile mission the staff has normally to carry the equipment by themselves. Fast setup up and removal is often crucial for the success of the mission. Therefore it counts

every (kilo-) gram and cubic meter being transported.

At this point roda´s mission starts with the (further) development of the Lizard® appearing now as a modular server in rugged Laptop form factor (Lizard® RW11).

The Lizard® RW11 has launched with an Intel®-Core-i7-Quad-Core-Processor that pulses with 3610QE Gigahertz. Furthermore it is upgradeable up to 32 Gigabyte memory and up to 4x 1 TB Flash-SSD for RAID storage option. The 15,6“ Full-HD-Display (1920 x 1080) is perfectly readable even by direct sunlight due to optical bonding.
The Intel® Graphics 4000 Processor (optional nVIDIA® GeForce® GT950M) is controlled through a 2 Gigabyte-Controller. Subject to the configuration, the laptop can be equipped with 2 battery packs to reach an extended operating time. By elimination of one battery tray a DVD/RW- Drive even can be integrated.
Further standard equipment is 2x GBit-LAN-Interfaces, 3x USB-Ports (2x 3.0, 1x2.0), 4x Serial 9-pin-D-Sub-Interfaces, 1x Display-Port, 1x VGA (all executable as military round plug) WLAN and Bluetooth as well as a adequate Keyboard with LED backlight.

The task forces will be relieved to know the weight of the thin, aluminum milled Lizard®-Server which weighs incredibly less than 5 kilograms.

The mentioned modularity is achieved through single mission- modules, which can be executed depending on desired functionality as multiple stackable and mechanically coupled DockUnder´s.

The modules will be available as 8-Port LWL- and RJ45-Switches as well as AC/DC-(DC/DC)-Power-Panel with integrated UPS. Therefore RW11 is able to overtake up to 7 functions: Server, Display Unit, Workstation, RAID, UPS, Input Device (Keyboard) and with the mission modules as a server rack. Combined with the Laptop-Server the system weighs just 17 kg, incredible perfect to carry by one person.

Certifications in accordance with military standard MIL-STD-810G (Vibration/Shock), MIL-STD-461F (EMV) and IP65 are obviously for roda.

Installed operating system is currently Win7, Win8.1 or Windows Server 2012.

Altogether a high mobile and compact Server for setting up successfully a stable and secure IT Network at the place of action!
