ATAK Services

Situational awareness in the palm of your hand

Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK, also known as the Android Team Awareness Kit) is a government-off-the-shelf app for Android smartphones. It is available to all government agencies for free. ATAK is a game-changer to operators, providing a complete situational awareness and communication coordination capability that is unmatched. DS2 is equipped to effectively support clients in adoption of ATAK and expand functionality for specific requirements.

DS2 offers a variety of services to support the adoption and use of ATAK. We can provide consultation in basic installation and configuration, as well as design and develop migration strategies to create custom solutions and integrations within ATAK. ATAK provides enhanced real-time situational awareness while providing enterprise information sharing capabilities to increase collaboration and mission success.

During a discovery engagement, DS2 will engage with a customer for a set period - typically two days - for a set price. We will consult with the customer and provide advice such as:

  • Onsite discovery of short, mid and long-term goals for successful deployment of ATAK & TAK Server
  • Technical deep dive into existing business area (network topology, environment, business needs, security constraints)
  • Scope planning for short and mid-term goals to deliver ATAK and TAK Server to their internal customers

Migration Services

Migration Services

Moving forward with ATAK

As part of services engagement, we offer migration services from legacy systems. These services include consulting with the customer's technical staff about the best way to migrate the existing solution to the ATAK architecture. We can implement the migration in a phased approach to ease adoption.

In all cases, a migration plan will be created with the customer to outline goals of the migration, as well as any plans that involve customer or DS2 actions.
