Defiense Flash News/Combat Camera released a video, below, of the USMC getting a quick brief of ATAK at Camp Atterbury as part of Bold Quest 20.2. What I find interesting in this video is that the USMC does not routinely use ATAK (yet), but they are getting training on it anyway.
According to Breaking Defense, The purpose of Bold Quest “is to demonstrate and assess the command and control interoperability of joint fires sensors and related systems in a multinational operating environment. The event tests and demonstrates the functional and technical interoperability of ground, sea and air-based intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and joint fires systems.”
ATAK’s wide availablilty makes training international forces easier.
This is however, not useful for instructional purposes.
