Tactical NAV

Tactical NAV LLC

Tactical NAV was created by a U.S. Army Field Artillery officer who was deployed to eastern Afghanistan on his third combat tour with the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).

While in combat, two of his fellow soldiers were killed fighting in the notorious Pech River Valley in Kunar Province, Afghanistan. From that point forward and as a way to honor his fallen comrades, he set out to create an MGRS-focused tactical mobile application that every U.S. military service member could utilize. All with the ultimate hope of saving the lives of others.


Tactical NAV’s mission is to provide 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 enable them to fight and win in the Multi-Domain Operational (MDO) battlespace.


Tactical NAV allows users to pinpoint their location with precision accuracy, and acquire an MGRS/UTM/BNG/LAT-LONG coordinate to any position on the map, anywhere in the world. Its 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.


Tactical NAV has been successfully evaluated against other targeting devices and software platforms such as JCR, CPOF, ATAK, and BFT, and comes within 1 to 3 meters of these "officially approved" systems that are issued by the Department of Defense. Currently, Tactical NAV is being used by tens of thousands of U.S. military and NATO personnel worldwide.

Featured in the Army Times, BBC, CNN, CBS News, ABC News, Fox News, MSNBC, Daily Mail, and the New York Times.


The Department of Defense does not endorse Tactical NAV, nor should it be used in combat situations in place of a government-issued device.
