Arovia Presents Mobile Display Solution SPUD to the US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) at the Exclusive TE 18-3 Event

July 23, 2018

HOUSTON, TX, July 23, 2018 -- Arovia, Inc., the developer and manufacturer of the first fully collapsible and portable computer monitor/display solution, announces that the Company was one of only 44 companies invited to demonstrate their new technology at the US Special Operations Command’s (SOCOM) Technical Experimentation Event TE 18-3, an invitation-only event, which was held July 17-19, 2018 at the U.S. Army’s Fort AP Hill in Bowling Green, VA.

SOCOM’s TE 3-day event provided a unique opportunity for Arovia and a few other select premier developers and systems integrators to showcase in a collaborative environment the latest technological advances that focus on providing real world solutions to SOF operators.

The primary intent of this event was to highlight technologies that support a specific list of SOCOM needs, including mobility. Arovia was honored to have been selected to demonstrate their soon-to-be released product SPUD, the Spontaneous Pop-Up Display, as a potential option to positively impact mobility and improve productivity by significantly reducing the weight and volume requirements of a mobile command or computing system. SPUD is the first solution to offer a desktop-sized 24-inch HD monitor screen that collapses down to the size of a hardcover book for transport. Weighing approximately 3 lbs., SPUD includes built-in speakers and a rechargeable battery that enables field use when no external power is available.

“We are honored to have been one of the few companies chosen to participate in SOCOM’s TE 18-3, especially when we’re standing among big players, such as Harris Corporation, L3 Technologies, and Lockheed Martin, to name a few”, said Manfredo Mazariegos (Maz), Head of Business Development at Arovia. Maz added that this event was an excellent opportunity to directly engage with the people and teams that could truly benefit from the mobility gained from a SPUD system. Arovia’s inclusion in this event reflects the fact that, while SOCOM continues to push the boundaries of technological advances in the field, the lack of truly mobile solutions has become an increasing burden and a new area of focus. Alex Wesley, Arovia’s CEO, believes that Arovia’s patented technology has the potential to redefine how mobile computing stations are transported and set up in the field, reducing transportation weight and storage space, deployment time, and overall cost, while at the same time improving user productivity.


Arovia, Inc. is the creator of SPUD, the Spontaneous Pop-Up Display, the first desktop-sized HD 24-inch display that collapses in seconds for portability. SPUD has appeared on NBC’s Today Show as a new Technology Trend, and CNBC recognized Arovia CEO Alexander Wesley as the creator of the entirely new collapsible display industry. Arovia is headquartered in Houston, Texas. For more information, visit
