Advanced Input Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Esterline Technologies Corp., has introduced an extremely ruggedized keyboard designed to operate in the harshest environments. Dubbed “the Grizzly,” the waterproof, dustproof, and chemical-resistant keyboard is built to withstand usage hazards typical of mobile, industrial, and military applications.

The keyboard features include USB compatibility, wear-proof legends, and “an excellent tactile feel.” Intensity controlled LED backlit keys are a strong performance advantage in low light situations, according to the company. An integrated FSR pointing device and a 10-key numeric keypad are also included.
