BACKGROUND: Built from the ground up in the rugged mountains of eastern Afghanistan, Tactical NAV comes from the mind of a U.S. Army Field Artillery officer who had a vision of creating a low-cost and extremely accurate mobile-targeting platform built specifically for U.S. military warfighters. Tactical NAV’s journey began when two Soldiers were killed in the notorious Pech River Valley of Kunar Province, Afghanistan. U.S. Army Capt. Jonathan J. Springer, a Fire Support Officer and JTAC with the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) who was on his third combat deployment, began developing the tactical platform following the memorial services for Spc. Blair D. Thompson and Spc. Jared C. Plunk, who were killed in action on June 25, 2010. After pitching the idea and being turned away by the Department of Defense, Springer remained resolute in his mission to continue building Tactical NAV in order to make a difference for other Soldiers and honor the men who were killed in battle. He ended up using his life savings to continue moving forward with the Tactical NAV project, all with the ultimate hope of saving U.S. military lives and helping his fellow service members accomplish their mission at home and abroad. Tactical NAV officially launched on the App Store in February of 2011. MISSION: Tactical NAV’s mission is to provide U.S. military warfighters a low-cost, extremely accurate, and exceedingly powerful mobile tactical navigational solution. VISION: Our vision is to assist and support our nation’s warfighters with their mobile navigational needs and further enable them to fight and win in the Multi-Domain Operational (MDO) battlespace. BUILT FOR ACCURACY: Tactical NAV's performance is on par with the AN/PSN 13 Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR), and the application has been used to accurately and safely deliver conventional and precision-guided munitions (PGM) onto enemy targets in support of combat operations. BOTTOM LINE: Purpose-built by warfighters and created to save U.S. military lives, Tactical NAV was the first MGRS-focused tactical app on the App Store and has proven to be effective in combat and training environments. Tactical NAV has been successfully evaluated against other targeting devices and software platforms such as JCR, BFT, JBC-P, and ATAK. Its accuracy is within 1 to 3 meters of these "officially approved" systems that are issued by the Department of Defense. IAPs & SUBSCRIPTIONS: Tactical NAV contains in-app purchases (IAPs) and subscriptions. Currently, tactical drawing mode is available as an in-app purchase, and offline mapping is also available to users as either a monthly or yearly subscription. All revenue generated from these features goes towards further developmental coding and updates, and a portion of all proceeds are donated to charities that specifically benefit disabled veterans. FEATURES: • A military-quality precision targeting platform • Purpose-built for the individual warfighter • Offline mapping capabilities (full usage of the TACNAV platform with no emission of a cellular signal) • WGS 84 standard (MGRS, UTM, BNG, and USNG coordinates) • Tactical drawing mode (useful for Joint Fires planning, creating overlays, route planning) • Waypoint plotting functionality with military graphics (per ADP 1-02) • Compass “FastLock” function for capturing quick azimuths • Snap and save photographs onto the main map for intelligence purposes and AARs • Location, waypoint, and photo sharing capabilities (via email and text) • One-button night mode function for low-light situations • "Go to Grid" option for smart pinpoint planning and drawing of overlays • Created and tested in combat to ensure utmost accuracy and reliability • iOS native code built for austere and contested environments • And so much more!!! IMPORTANT NOTES: The Department of Defense does not endorse Tactical NAV, nor should it be used in combat situations in place of a government-issued device.

This app isn’t just deployable to war zones! I am a prior Army Sergeant who loves to go out into the wild and I don’t always grab my Garmin but I always have my phone! With this app I can feel at ease knowing I have the technology to find my way out of the thick of it if I get turned around! The map is as easy to view as those such as google and maps by Apple. If you are in city limits there is even store names and very detailed mapping of the area streets and side alleys! On the military side of this, the owner takes the lives of Soldiers very serious and created this to ensure those lobbing rounds down range had the best tool available to ensure call for fire was as accurate as possible to ensure the lives lost were the intended targets and to ensure those who called it in got the protection they needed! He didn’t create this app just for a dollar sign, he would put the lives saved and protected by the accuracy of his app over any amount of money, that’s the kind of guy who is putting his life into this! “What is the sound of artillery”

This app is such a user-friendly platform where the everyday civilian and soldier can easily access and be provided navigation in simple camping/hiking environments to the most extreme and stressful environments on the battlefield. Within the private sector, this app provides clearer and more concise navigation to civilians in all environments and has been tested and accurately utilized on the hectic streets and alleys of NYC! As a fires intelligence officer, there is no better innovation that is easily and readily available that I would trust more than this app. This app provided our artillery batteries and the chain of command the necessary and critical information to send rounds down range in a timely and most efficient and accurate matter that saved lives! The mission was an overall success by providing clear and concise direction to all commanders on the battlefield to enabling all soldiers to be intelligence agents by providing such critical coordinates and direction to make responsible and life-altering decisions.

I am a police officer and avid outdoorsman and I have used this app for both. I have use this app for both training and live police operations. Everything from surveillance to warrant execution and it offers comprehensive mapping and target location features. I have use this on camping hiking and canoeing trips and it allows you to mark beginning, middle and end points that are easy to read and easy to share with others in your group. When I had a problem with minor bugs in the operation of the app I emailed Johnathan singer and he replied within minutes. He fully explained the behind the scenes technical work he is currently doing to fix the bugs and assured me that future updates would fix any of these issues. Customer service is absolutely outstanding. I would absolutely recommend this app to anybody with any police, military or outdoors needs!

Jon, I’ve been going back and forth for months whether to download this app or not. And I’m glad that I did. I absolutely love it. It’s a great app. You did a great job building this. I was just wondering two things that could possibly be fixed or maybe tweaked if possible. When you place a waypoint on the map, can you please make it to where the label name is closer to the icon that it is labeled on. What I want to do is label a waypoint, but also be able to zoom out a few times and the waypoints not be overlapping each other. To get a bigger picture on what my teams are looking at. When you zoom out just a couple of times, all of the labels overlap each other and you can’t tell what they are unless you zoom all the way in. Is there anyway you can make download the app on a different account such as Google Play, for my laptop, even though I have already purchased it for iPhone? I use my laptop a lot of mission planning but I cannot download it on the google play store because I have to buy it again. Maybe a “sign in” option for people who have bought it one either google play or iPhone. Thanks again for the app. I do appreciate it. John W.

First off, I personally know the developer, who I served along side with in the military, and would never put out anything substandard. This app has been tested and actually used in real combat all around the world by different militaries not only the US. If you are looking for anything tactical, this is the app for you. If would like something added or change, email the developer and he will do everything to make it happen. There are other apps out there that do the same, but this was made by a combat veteran for combat applications. For the price of a few tacos, you can upgrade your phone to a combat targeting platform. Try it out, you won’t be sorry.
