CELL GRID SYSTEM
Go to the current version of Grid Finder™ for immediate lat-long plotting on grids & other useful information
The "new" grid system is now called the CELL grid system. Counter Narcotics and Counter Drug (CN/CD) operations function solely on the Cell grid system, while the Conventional grid system may or may not be in use by your wing for Seach and Rescue and/or Disaster Relief (SAR/DR) operations. You can find out more about the Cell grid system by downloading The Cell Grid System as explained by Col Gene Kellogg, CAP. This easily-understood one-page sheet is invaluable to those who are using the Cell grid system. You can view a graphic version of the Cell grid system handout below.
The advantage of the Cell grid system is that very little preparation needs to be made prior to use. When given a set of coordinates, one does not need a grid
