How the tactical situation awareness app saves lives in Ukraine

The map app helps combat medics plan safe evacuation routes from the front lines by giving the medics situation awareness of exactly what hostile activity could be encountered on their evacuation route.

For instance, if the map app shows a Russian tank close to the planned evacuation route, the app can help the evacuation team choose the safest route to avoid potential contact with the enemy.

Exactly how the app saves lives is explained in the video below by Brandon Mitchel and Garfield, both volunteer combat medics with the Hospitallers Medical Battalion of Ukraine.

  • Would you consider donating your older tablets to the battalion to save lives?
  • The tablets need not be of the highest specification but should not be of too low a specification.
