Operational Success Starts with TAK

Complete Situational Awareness

Maps and situational awareness (SA) are critical to coordinated tasks in many contexts, including kinetic military action, law enforcement, civil protection, and disaster relief. TAK has the ability to display a wide variety of map data, either stored or downloaded in real-time. TAK is the USG's premier tool for shared SA data and has the largest selection of features designed to facilitate real-time coordination between team members through the use of mission specific plugins.

Pre-Mission Planning

In addition to the standard mission execution planning tools, mission specific capabilities give a user more insight into certain aspects of their assigned tasks. Navigation tools, including viewshed analysis, help users select and traverse a pre-planned route buy displaying the elevation profile of the route along with speed, distance, and bearing to the next waypoint.

Pre-mission planning is essential to enabling safe, effective, and rapid deployment of resources. TAK enables effective planning by providing a common understanding of exposure and vulnerabilities based on real time updates of any rapidly developing environment.

Streamlined Deployment

Points, routes, drawing objects, and files can be shared through TAK user defined groups, teams or simply broadcasted. While most data sharing clients require a server, TAK’s CoT & chat sharing features can operate in a server-less environment amongst nodes operating on the same network. TAK Server can be introduced to extend client connectivity across networks or federated for persistent command and control.

From highest commander to the ground forces and attached air & sea assets, deploying with the TAK Common Operational Picture ensures safe, dynamic, and effective mission execution.
