Technology that was initially developed for military and aerospace can often be repurposed in new applications in medicine, transportation, or even consumer goods. There are numerous benefits in doing this since the technology is highly reliable, readily available and easily adaptable. ZMicro has taken this approach, and in addition to its primary focus on serving military markets, the company has created industrial computers, displays and video enhancement systems for medical, broadcasting and transportation markets.


The networked battlespace is rapidly expanding and evolving and thus creating an increasing need to rapidly field systems that are smarter and faster while at the same time smaller, lighter and more cost-effective. Rugged computing solutions are vital to the military, especially as onboard computing becomes common and crucial on vehicles, field sensors, ISR missions and weapons systems. ZMicro’s rugged systems are built to withstand the combat environment using proven COTS components that are ruggedized to stand up to extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, and electromagnetic interference. The brand of choice by government and military customers, ZMicro solutions are ready for your next mission whether it takes you in the air, at sea, or on the ground.


Technologies that improve image clarity play an important role in improving patient outcomes from medical procedures such as endoscopic and laparoscopic surgeries. Enhanced visualization can aid surgeons by improving the identification and visualization of the anatomy. ZMicro has developed technologies that enable medical practitioners to integrate information and imagery from many sources, visualize a defect or condition within the body and to perform an intervention that improves surgical precision, recovery time, and the overall quality of patient care.


Broadcasters, and particularly news and sports stations, need to deliver live video content related to breaking news and events in order to attract and retain viewers. However, often live video is poor quality due to environmental conditions such as fog, rain, dust, smoke, underwater, low light, or bright light. ZMicro offers broadcasters a selection of video processing systems that can significantly improve visual clarity in live video streams to reveal greater detail or zero in on areas of interest.



Transportation agencies typically rely on information from a network of traffic and surveillance cameras. ZMicro offers these organizations real-time image enhancement capabilities, advanced video analytics, and video search and management systems that allow them to monitor traffic or track assets, giving them the ability to respond in real-time to changing conditions in order to improve transportation safety, traffic flow, asset management, and security.


ZMicro has been a leading provider in the deployable computing market for more than thirty years. We credit our successes to innovation, customer responsiveness, and our dedication to ongoing improvement. To ensure that every ZMicro’s product stands up to our high expectations and promise, we participate in a long list of standards and practices, compliance testing, and certification processes.
