Tactical to Practical Appearing on the History Channel.

Program Concept:

They say necessity is the mother of invention, and few situations rival military necessity. What is surprising is how often solutions to military problems turn out to be useful in everyday life.

Tactical to Practical is a new series exploring stories of incredible invention, surprising technology, and product innovation born in the midst of conflict that have evolved into new and exciting applications for civilian life. It also profiles technology from the civilian sector that has been added to the toolkit of our military forces.

Each one-hour episode of Tactical To Practical features three individual stories -- fascinating accounts of action, adventure and creative invention -- told in an entertaining manner with first person interviews, historical footage, animations and current lifestyle sequences from around the country. Emphasis is on the “wow” factor featuring compelling history and exciting and visually rich demonstrations of great gadgets. And those demonstrations are often performed by our rugged “I’ll try anything” host, former Navy Fighter Pilot Hunter Ellis. Hunter’s involvement in the stories makes them come alive on screen.

Tactical to Practical is a tribute to the talented men, women and organizations that have earned a place on the pages of history as originators of important contributions to our modern society.

Host Profile:

Host Hunter Ellis is a former Navy Fighter Pilot and carrier aviator with over 2000 hours in the F/A-18 Hornet, TA-4J Skyhawk, T-2C Buckeye, and T-34C Turbo mentor. Completing two Middle East deployments in support of Operations Southern Watch, Desert Strike and Desert Fox, Hunter made 433 carrier landings, over 100 of them at night. He's qualified as an F/A-18C Flight Demonstrations Pilot and Landing Signals Officer, and upon serving 10 and 1/2 years with the United States military, he is currently a pilot for Federal Express. Many may recognize Hunter as a contestant from the popular TV series Survivor where he was a tribe member in “Survivor: Marquesas.”

Pilot Program Profile:

The Tactical To Practical pilot sets the stage for the series' high-action, high-tech, high-adventure approach to military & historical story-telling combined with cutting edge civilian application.

This coming season Tactical to Practical will bring you the history and technology behind such venues as lasers, radar, helicopters, tanks, subs, simulators and virtual warfare, non-lethal weapons, the wireless soldier, and battlefield medicine.
