Tactical Sand Table for iOS

By Michael Mehlberg $9.99

Developer's Description

Sand tables have remained an effective mission planning and educational tool for the military despite being formed with primitive materials. Tactical Sand Table throws those primitive materials away, and lets the modern soldier draw mission plans, train fellow soldiers, and conduct after action reviews (AARs) on their iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch!When it comes to training or mission planning on a sand table, imagination is the only limitation. Using a sand table, an instructor can conjure up an infinite number of scenarios forcing students to make decisions for pre-conceived situations. The sand table concept may be used as a visual aid to support other training methods such as storytelling, topographic map interpretation, and after action reviews (AAR). Sand tables can also provide a common frame of reference for planning sessions, briefings, and critiques. As such, military branches all over the world utilize land-based sand table exercises.Mission Planning Features:+ Streamlined interface for ultra-fast mission planning+ Unlimited Undo/Redo!+ Video output on iPhone and iPad (collaborative mission planning)+ Load your own maps (from photo library or iPhone camera) and draw your plan directly on it+ Use Google Maps as a background, pre-canned images, or use your own photos+ Describe weather wind speed/direction+ Quickly email a snapshot of your sand table to anyone!+ HUNDREDS of MIL-STD-2525B tactical overlays included!+ Rename your tactical overlay icons as you see fit.+ Rotate, resize, and fade your tactical overlays!Mission Playback Features:+ Playback your scenario after drawing!!!+ Play, fastfoward, rewind, skip forward and back in your drawing, just like you drew it!Tactical Sand Table is a tool designed with the American Soldier in mind to hone skills, increase communication, and learn from mistakes.
