Warrior East 2017 – Juggernaut IMPCT Case

Friday, July 14th, 2017

The Juggernaut IMPCT is the lightest weight case they’ve ever built. Designed for use with the S8, S8 Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, it features a simple, snap-in floor plate with optional rubber gasket for those times you need to protect the connectors from ingress.

It is also compatible with Juggernaut’s line of mounts.

Although it was designed for LE and ruggedized industry, a wide variety of others will want them as well with pricing below $50.

Guest Post – Chris Stalzer On Juggernaut.Case

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

I’ve been on the road quite a bit over the last few months, attending trade shows and participating in one-on-one demos with end users. During one of our recent debriefings, our Principal Engineer, Tom, asked me “What were you surprised that people didn’t know about Juggernaut?” Here are my top five:

• Juggernaut does custom product design work for all sorts of defense rugged products, not just smartphone cases.
• We custom configure our off-the-shelf product at very low minimum order quantity.
• There are 3 types of Juggernaut.Cases and all fit in the same mounts.
• Juggernaut manufactures custom cables in-house for system integrators.
• We sell to any consumer on our web store, you don’t have to be SOF.

Juggernaut does custom product design work for all sorts of defense rugged products, not just smartphone cases.
Juggernaut started in 2000 as a product design consultancy and quickly found that the defense community was not well understood by most design professionals. Early on during the Objective Force Warrior program, we found inspiration and kindred spirits in Caleb Crye of Crye Precision fame and Dave Rogers, founder of Ops Core. Both started out as design consultancies but found a passion for solving design problems for war fighters. Even though we’ve been manufacturing off-the-shelf solutions for bringing smartphones to the battlefield, we still continue to help defense contractors with user focused design and engineering of rugged products to support the warfighter. You can check out our portfolio here.

We custom configure our off-the-shelf product at very low minimum order quantity.
One of the toughest problems designing and manufacturing product for SOF is the low quantities involved. That means that we’ve had to build our entire business culture around designing and tooling efficiency. System integrators are shocked that we can build an entirely new phone case around a custom device, tool it and produce it in weeks. Our current record was the s50c case. The first 25 units shipped to a large radio manufacturer 6 weeks and 1 day after kick-off.

There are 3 types of Juggernaut.Cases and all fit in the same mounts.
Since the latest phones from Samsung and Apple are now waterproof, we’ve added two new types of Juggernaut.Cases to our lineup. Our original Juggernaut.Case is a fully sealed waterproof and cabled case that will keep non-waterproof phones connected to your tactical radio even underwater. The SLEEV is a version of the original case without a sealed glass screen protector. It allows quick removal of the phone, includes our quick disconnect cable and is significantly less expensive than the original. Our BUMPR is an even simpler, less expensive case that screws together and can be cabled, but does not offer quick tool-less removal of the phone or cable. All of the cases fit in the same 5, 6 & 8” line of mounts (Chest, Forearm, Kneeboard, Vehicle…) so if you upgrade cases your old mount will still work. Our iPhone BUMPR will fit in the same Chest Mount from a Galaxy Note I built in 2012.

Juggernaut manufactures custom cables in-house for system integrators.
System integrators have enough on their plate without building custom cables to interface between their system and the Juggernaut.Case. It’s time consuming and expensive buying a small number of connectors and the custom crimpers that are also needed, not to mention strain relief tooling. We build cables and over-mold strain reliefs in-house at our Arizona facility. We design our own production molds and have them built in days for around $1000. We can also build shielded inline modules and splitters on a cable.

We sell to any consumer on our web store, you don’t have to be SOF.
While most of our cases are used by SOF operators around the world, we also sell to anyone who needs a rugged, mounted, or cabled smart phone. We have customers using them for GPS applications mounted in boats, off road vehicles, MilSim fans, and deployed individuals users who prefer the Juggernaut.Case to what they might have been issued. You can easily order on our webstore.

MDM – Juggernaut.Case BUMPR

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

This is the upcoming BUMPR Android S6/7 case from Juggernaut.Case. You’ll also see it for the iPhone 6/7. It is a low cost / low frills alternative for those who do not require full environmental protection and external radio connectivity.

This is the rear of the BUMPR.

They’ve also created a QD USB-A Juggernaut cable which allows recharge from within the case for those who don’t need a Glenaire cable.

These are the dust caps which facilitate use of the charging cable.

This shows you the difference between the BUMPR and a fully ruggedized Juggernaut.Case.

Juggernaut.Case Introduces the New SLEEV and BUMPR Products for 2016

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

For years guys have been telling me that they wished Juggernaut’s handheld device cases were more affordable.  Now, they’ve leveraged everything they learned building the program-level cases in order to introduce streamlined variants that you can afford to buy out of your pocket. Check these out.

With more waterproof smartphones on the market, Juggernaut.Case™ introduces two new levels of protective cases evolved from our field-proven rugged hard case. The new cases are an affordable solution for users that don’t need all of the protection of the original Juggernaut.Case™ but still seek impact/drop protection in addition to full compatibility with all existing Juggernaut.Case™ mounts. The new cases are called the “SLEEV” and the “BUMPR”. Both are available with or without cables for connecting to Tactical Radios/Hubs.

While the SLEEV retains the capability to utilize the new QDD (quick disconnect DOOR) and the QD Cable assemblies via the two thumbscrews, the BUMPR is either Cabled or Non-Cabled with sealed access ports to the micro-USB connector and 3.5 mm audio jack. A new low-cost cable assembly for these cases that terminates in a standard USB-A connector allows unshielded data transfer and 5V power to the device from any portable external battery or car charger, etc.
