Is there any confirmation in the content of the site and the titles for 
the keywords you have in your meta tags?  IOW, do "Rugged VME" or 
"MPEG2" show up and are referenced often on the pages in question?  
Something like:

<.Title>Rugged VME systems from Acme Inc meet your needs for a robust 
VME system<./Tltle>
<h1>Rugged VME</h1>
<p>Want a really rugged VME?  Then look no further than Acme's 
selection.  Our rugged VMEs set the standard for robust equipment.</p>
