What is TAK?
Tactical Assault Kit (TAK) is a geospatial mapping engine, originally developed for the Android Operating System, which allows for precision targeting, surrounding land formation intelligence, situational awareness, navigation, and data sharing. TAK serves as a common user interface for basic position location information yet provides a basis for hosting various user enabling tools for an enhanced user experience. TAK can function as a standalone situational awareness tool or incorporated through various tactical and commercial networks.
TAK is under continuous development as a Program of Record by the US Special Operation Command and partner Government laboratories to include the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. TAK enables users to navigate using GPS associated with National Geospatial Agency or Commercial map data overlayed with real-time situational awareness of ongoing events and representing the surrounding area using military standard MIL-STD-2525B symbology for iconography or other user defined standards while incorporating the Cursor on Target data format standard for communication and data dissemination.
