We also build highly customized trackballs for military applications. Here are some of examples of USMP’s products for the military:

US Navy Tac 4 Trackballs

Our industrial/military 50 mm trackball was used in this application. It had to meet a number of stringent military specifications for shock, vibration and environmental requirements. It also had to withstand 150 pounds of pressure on the unit – the equivalent of someone standing on the trackball. This unit included a heavy metal fascia plate and four buttons for mouse input functions. Due to the stainless steel components and rugged design of the unit, the trackballs have held up in the field very well.

Air Force One Trackball

Our durable 3-button fascia mounted trackball is currently being used on Air Force One. The small footprint of this unit made it a perfect choice for this application where real estate is at a premium. The sealed unit helps prevent unwanted ball movement due to aircraft vibrations.

Army CHS2 Trackball

Our rugged 38 mm sealed trackball was used in another military application during Desert Storm. The robust seal on this unit has held up very well against the harsh sands of the desert.

Military Helicopter Trackball

Our highly engineered Trackball is customized to meet mil specs for Naval helicopters.  The trackball is designed to work perfectly in the high vibration, tough environmental conditions of this application.
