App Report for Tactical NAV
Play Store Description for United States
Created to save U.S. military lives, Tactical NAV was the first MGRS-focused app available for smartphones. The app was built during a combat deployment to Afghanistan and has been utilized by conventional and special operations forces throughout the world. The story behind Tactical NAV is well known. The app was created by a U.S. Army field artillery officer who was deployed to Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne Division in 2010. While deployed, he saw a need for an MGRS-focused smartphone application that every Soldier and service-member in the world could utilize -- something the Department of Defense wasn't taking advantage of despite their massive budget. The original intent behind the app was to create a low-cost, accurate, and effective mobile navigational solution for military service-members that was built for accuracy. It allows users to pinpoint their location with precision accuracy, and acquire an MGRS grid coordinate to any location, anywhere in the world. Its performance is on par with the AN/PSN 13 Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR) and has been tested and used in combat. It has also been evaluated against other software systems the DOD uses such as CPOF, BFT, and other targeting solutions the Pentagon utilizes for target acquisition.
