PAR Government is a lead developer of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Android and Windows Tactical Assault Kit (WinTAK) and Team Awareness Kit (TAK) solutions. ATAK is a mobile application while WinTAK is a Windows-based capability for joint/tactical operations centers (JOC/TOC). TAK features geospatial information processing and provides visualization for full motion video (FMV) feeds. PAR Government also developed the first iOS version of TAK called iTAK.

Data Replay:

PAR Government’s Data Replay capability provides an easy recording function, capturing all Cursor on Target (CoT) traffic and map movements during a mission. This is an ideal tool for dynamic playback or reviewing lessons learned during an after-action report.

Tree View Overlay Manager:

View and manipulate an overlay manager in a tree-view / file explorer. The Tree Overlay capability helps users keep track of data and their nested overlay manager categories.

End User Device (EUD) Provisioning:

PAR Government’s Android EUD Provisioning capability allows TAK users to receive out-of-the-box, provisioned Android mobile devices with a tactical edition ROM installed and licensed, and includes integration support with tactical radio devices.

FMV Viewing:

We pioneered software solutions  to view and interact with Motion Imagery Standards Board (MISB) compliant Key Length Value (KLV) data embedded in full motion video (FMV) streams.

Open Source Computing:

We support the U.S. DoD with projects such as ATAK-Civ – a public domain open source solution. PAR Government continues to excel in systems development initiatives, including mobile development of FMV/geospatial solutioning.

Plug-in Development:

We were instrumental in the initial development of plug-in architecture. Today, we continue to refine capabilities under current funded efforts, helping with TAK extensibility. The plug-in architectures for ATAK and WinTAK make it easy for third parties to enhance and extend the core product for end users, tailoring TAK to meet specific uses.

Hardware Integration:

Both ATAK and WinTAK take a network agnostic (and vendor agnostic) approach to real-time collaboration. Both solutions are capable of interacting with networks where connectivity is sparse. PAR Government's TE-Enabler, an Android App, runs alongside mobile SA Apps like ATAK, providing a comprehensive view of the battlespace. The integrated solution supports interoperability of peripherals Samsung Tactical Edition Galaxy S9 and S20 mobile devices. Our solution integrates tactical radios and sensor controls for video sources, even if they don’t share a common network.

In 2016, with the advent of the WinTAK application, PAR Government develops a cross platform environment to share business logic between the ATAK and WinTAK products. During this same year, our team uses cross-platform environment, devloping the iOS Tactical Assault Kit (iTAK).

The ATAK application, with mission planning capabilities for mobile users, was extended to a PC architecture with a keyboard/mouse and larger screen real estate. We began development of the Windows Tactical Assault Kit (WinTAK), bringing PC-based capability online, matching capabilities with ATAK.

With the advent of a collaboration capability inside of ATAK, the number of tools centering around connected work began to skyrocket. At the same time, the need to interoperate with other systems on a tactical network increased. To make ATAK more extensible and interoperable, the PAR Government team played a key role in developing the plug-in architecture.

With the base growing for ATAK, the need for a sophisticated map rendering engine became apparent. Our team drew from our deep knowledge of processing geospatial imagery, developing a solution that rendered file based and streaming geospatial products to the Android device without requiring external processing.

Network connectivity to ATAK became the goal. The PAR Government team was tapped for this project, and members started exploring how to interface Android handsets and tablets with tactical radios.

The PAR Government team was involved with shaping the original ATAK product as part of a 2010 Air Force Research Laboratory effort. The solution was a mobile android device application for mission planners operating in environments without connectivity. We began contributing our geospatial image processing expertise, helping provide data to a disconnected mapping engine.
