The MAGTF Common Handheld program will allow Marines to securely use modern handheld communications devices like tablets and smartphones in tactical environments to make more informed decisions on the go. Marine Corps Systems Command partnered with the National Security Agency’s Commercial Solutions for Classified program to address the unique security considerations inherent in using commercial products for tactical purposes.  The program is designed to identify suitable commercial handheld devices, customize their software and ensure they meet security standards. The program will provide devices with the necessary tactical applications preinstalled, eliminating the need to have multiple electronics for various capabilities.
