Android Team Awareness Kit (ATAK) was originally created by the US DoD for military applications over a decade ago. Now a Civilian version is available for use by first responders and other agencies for free. Download it now from the play store or learn more about its history at TAK.gov.
Log into your Sit(x) account and create groups, chat, see what groups are active, and know how many groups you are federated with. The Sit(x) service provides high levels of confidentiality, integrity, and security for all users and can instantly scale from small teams to thousands of simultaneous users when responding to a crisis situation.
Sit(x) Video Index
From introductory videos to specific tutorials, this is the area you'll want to check out. This Video Index of training videos gives you a hands-on approach to learning more about the Sit(x) product and how it integrates with TAK.
As a technology-agnostic mobile solution, Sit(x) gives you the ability to connect Android (ATAK), Windows (WinTAK), Web (Dashboard), iOS (iTAK) users within the same operating environment. Create and manage groups within an organization, federate the groups with each other or with other users no matter the affiliation, easily with Sit(x).
What is Sit(x)?
Situational Awareness (SA) provides knowledge of what is happening in the area of operation while gathering intelligence in real time. Sit(x) works with the Android Team Awareness Kit (ATAK) to provide an SA solution to communicate, push data to others, and see other operators in real time. To put it into layman's terms, it provides you (the user) the ability to see others movements and actions within your group, and provides you with the ability to send data points and chat messages to those people.

Sit(x) vs TAK Server
TAK-as-a-Service is powered by the Sit(x) platform, a PAR Government managed service offering. The Sit(x) platform operates in AWS GovCloud and, as of March 2023, is currently undergoing review for FedRAMP Authorization that is being sponsored by a Federal Agency. The Sit(x) platform is a cloud native capability that is 100% interoperable with ATAK, WinTAK, and the Government Off The Shelf TAK Server. Sit(x) is integrated with AWS Wickr blending secure messaging with situational awareness.
Organizations can now create and manage their own bridge adapters. Bridge adapters allow 3rd party systems to send and receive data to Sit(x) groups and allows Sit(x) integrators to develop microservices to inject an interoperability layer for TAK consumers. Bridge adapters have the same security requirements as regular connections but have a different authentication strategy that is more amenable to enterprise environments.
The Sit(x) product now includes DataSync. In our initial rollout users of WinTAK can leverage DataSync to create, view, and update missions via the DataSync tool. We are currently beta testing ATAK support for this new feature and expect to have that rolled out to users in the coming weeks.
Our GvStreamer product allows users to livestream UAS video, device video, and stationary camera video securely without overcomplicating things. Users can configure access to video sources from within the Sit(x) web user interface. To access this feature login to your Sit(x) dashboard and use the Administration -> Video Aliases menu to access your existing video aliases. Clicking or tapping on the Add Alias button in the upper right corner will let you specify a new video alias that can be shared with your TAK users by using the built in video tool.
