Sharp's BIG PAD display chosen by the Italian Army's Military Academy

Sharp Italy was chosen as the technology supplier for the Italian army at its training ground. Discover how they make the most of the Sharp BIG PAD in extreme training conditions.

We’re increasingly finding that Sharp BIG PAD, with its 24/7 warranty, is being chosen for challenging environments, from those work spaces that run around the clock to more specialised and unique locations where detail and accuracy are paramount.

For the ultimate example of extreme working with a BIG PAD, Sharp Italy was chosen as the technology supplier for the Italian army at its training ground in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Here Sharp interactive displays help train 1600 Cadet Officers and Trainee Warrant Officers at the Military Academy in a wide range of situations.

Working closely with the client was key to success in this case, as Carlo Alberto Tenchini, Marketing and Communications Director Sharp Italy, explains “Our goal has always been to meet the needs of the customer and in this case there were special needs to take into consideration. For example, along with interactivity, the displays needed to be mobile, so the cadets could take the screens in the field with them on mobile exercises. So we equipped each BIG PAD with a specially constructed Flight Case with its own motorised stand that allows for easy transport.”

This specially constructed BIG PAD is put through its paces when cadets are out in the field running cartography training. By using the BIG PAD as a table they can work collectively with maps, gain greater insight and interact by planning routes more effectively, making mobile exercises more productive and interactive.

The Sharp BIG PAD does more than replace the flip-chart or projector in a conventional office. By talking with Sharp Italy about its needs, we were able to offer the Italian Army Cadets true collaboration, 24 hours a day, regardless of location.
