Here’s an article from Raytheon’s use of ATAK on DARPA’s Persistent Close Air Support program.
HE APP THAT SAVES LIVES: ANDROID TACTICAL ASSAULT KIT
A tablet is only as effective as the program it runs. Raytheon BBN Technologies, one of the company’s advanced research centers, helped develop that program: ATAK, or Android Tactical Assault Kit.
ATAK allows soldiers to chat, share video, map points of interest and plan routes, sharing information in real time. And it runs on off-the-shelf Android tablets and smartphones.
“It started out as a dynamic, moving map, but now ATAK has become a full situational awareness app with a lot of features built in for specific users,” said Joe Loyall, a principal scientist at Raytheon BBN.
