Military and Government

Standard and customized cases designed and tested to meet rigorous MIL-STD requirements.

Military Cases

Gemstar has designed, tested, and produced military cases to meet a variety of specifications and deployable programs. Our cases and custom foam have protected electronics on the Mars Rover Mission, transported critical vehicle military repair and maintenance kits, and housed naval wireless communication systems, to name a few.

From closed cell to anti-stat foam, from shock mounts to rack mounts - we've done it all. We understand product fragility and can design the right shock-absorbing system to protect your equipment and hold up to repeated abuse. Our cases are designed to serve as long life reusable containers in support of our military.
