The 3rd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment became the first US Marine Corps unit to use the new AN/PSC-13 Dismounted Data Automated Communication Terminal (D-Dact) on operations when it was equipped with the system in mid-2005.
Under the supervision of the Marine Corps Systems Command the Dact team includes Tallahassee Technologies, which, designed and produces the R-PDA for the D-Dact and the rugged hand-held computer for the M-Dact, Northrop Grumman, which developed the command and control PC and CE software applications and Raytheon, which provides system engineering/integration support and furnishes the TacLink modem.
The final report of the 2004 Joint Warrior Interoperability Demonstration, which was based on a homeland security scenario, noted, << D-Dact's unique ability to display, in real-time, all first responder positional data on a Cop [common operational picture] on their own hand-held PDA with positional information updated every 60 seconds, makes this tool especially valuable for command and control in a crisis/emergency situation.
