App Store Description

This app isn't for everyone.

It's for a soldier.

But not just any soldier. This app is for a soldier who understands the importance of training, planning, and preparing for a fight.

This app is for a soldier who knows 3 things:

1) If you don't train, you put your brothers-in-arms at risk.
2) If you don't plan, your enemy will have the advantage.
3) If you don't prepare, well, that's what your enemy is doing right now... this very moment... while you read about this app.

Thousands of your fellow soldiers who know this are using Tactical Sand Table, right now, to create detailed training scenarios and mission plans ULTRA fast. Look at what a few of them had to say:

~~~"You have created an excellent planning and briefing tool that my colleagues and I use on a nearly daily basis. I look forward to the evolution of your work."

~~~"Love the app, I have my iPad at work every day and this is perfect for sketching scheme of maneuver for planning activities."

~~~"Think your app is awesome and has tremendous capabilities. As a military planner, it has all the basic features I need."

You know what a sand table is...

Using a sand table, you can build an infinite number of scenarios to help make decisions for pre-conceived situations. It can 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.

When it comes to training or mission planning on a sand table, imagination is the only limitation. And, despite being formed with primitive materials, sand tables have remained an tool for hundreds of years.

*** Tactical Sand Table throws those primitive materials away and lets you, a modern soldier, plan missions and train fellow soldiers on their iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. ***

It's a no-nonsense app, giving you the tools you need to create a virtual sand table in (literally) seconds. Here are just a few things you can do:

+ Draw your tactical plan directly on an image, photo, or live map so you can train for unanticipated scenarios.
+ Playback any captured event after with DVD-like controls (play, fast-forward, rewind, etc) so you can quickly brief your plan with others.
+ Video output on iPhone and iPad for collaborative mission planning, briefs, and debriefs.
+ Built-in maps not detailed enough? Load your own maps (from photo library or iPhone camera) and start planning.
+ Satellite, street, and terrain imagery available so you can get the detail you need for the plan you're creating.
+ Quickly email saved plans or screenshots so your unit is in sync.
+ Hundreds of standard tactical icons to identify structures, units, vehicles, hazards, etc. drawn from MIL-STD-2525 symbology.
+ Personalize tactical icon names to anything you want. Use terms specific to you and your unit.
+ Streamlined interface for ultra-fast scenario development. There's nothing here you don't need, and everything you do.
+ Unlimited Undo/Redo.
+ Describe weather for outdoor situations (particularly useful for riflemen).
