Created to save U.S. military lives, Tactical NAV was the first MGRS-focused app commercially available to the public, and it has been proven to be effective in both combat and training environments.
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 with the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) who was on his third combat deployment, began developing the tactical platform immediately 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 also honor the men that 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 to help his fellow service members accomplish their mission at home and abroad.
Tactical NAV’s mission is to provide U.S. military warfighters a low-cost, extremely accurate, and exceedingly powerful mobile tactical navigational solution.
Our vision is to assist and support our nation’s warfighters with their mobile navigational needs and to 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.
Purpose-built by warfighters for 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 both 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, and its accuracy is within 1 to 3 meters of these "officially approved" systems that are issued by the Department of Defense.
