Diamond Point International (Europe) Ltd
Diamond Point International Ltd with headquarters in Rochester Kent UK and offices in Bangalore India provides a full range of military grade computers and peripherals. These range from rugged PC/104 systems to complex VME DO-254 / 178B full avionics systems. Additionally DPI based on their extensive embedded computer knowledge offer a full bespoke design service helping many of the world's leading defence contractors meet their embedded computer development goals on time and on budget.
Military Grade Computers
With 25 year's experience DPI has also gained much knowledge in the use of solid state storage in military environments. This involves wide temperatures, high shock and vibration, purging and self-destruct facilities. In recent years DPI has also introduced the highest performing storage systems currently available with latency figures in the low micro seconds and IO performance well in excess of 200,000 4K mixed read write IOP’s.
NO ITAR!!! Virtually all our products are non ITAR restricted this can provide massive savings in time and administration.
Conduction cooled VME & Compact PCI systems
VME, VM64, VPX, 3U & 6U Compact PCI, PMC, XMC, COTS Standards.
DPI with their partner Aitech Inc specialise in and are market leaders in, providing advanced-technology Commercially-available Off-The-Shelf (COTS) products, customised products, subsystems integration and logistics for our defence and aerospace customers. Applications for our products range from mission computers, target acquisition and closed-loop fire control, and mission-display subsystems for ground vehicles, to surface and subsurface naval platforms, to tactical and strategic fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, and launch booster, low- to high-earth orbit, and deep-space vehicles. And all products are tightly coupled with our Earned Value Management and technical support services.
A market pioneer in the field of rugged computing for Defence applications, Aitech was the first company to market full MIL-SPEC VME computers based on Motorola's microprocessor families.
GEO and LEO Radiation Tolerant Computers
Available to Level 2 Components NASA GSFC - INST - 001

Bespoke Military Systems.
DPI as a Kontron authorised embedded computing design house has designed and manufactured and shipped 1000’s of bespoke systems to meet the very exact requirements of their military customers. This service includes embedded processor design, IO, communications, cooling strategy and chassis design. DPI is audited to ISO 9001 Quality Standard for design manufacture production stocking and distribution. Our engineering department understand military contractors needs as we come from that background DPI can provide the spare capacity to take on the standard parts of a requirement leaving our customers engineers free to develop the more specialised aspect of a given project.
GPS & Timing
DPI has an extensive range of GPS tracking products from world leader Trimble. We also supply highly accurate timing components and systems used extensively in network performance measurement and synchronisation. These two product ranges are supported by a full range of powered antennas specialist cables and mounting accessories. We can also supply L1/L2 Antennas upon request.
