C.tac Universal Search App

Search all of your data resources with one search and single sign-on


C.tac is COBRA.net’s native web-based unified search app. Powering ONE single search across all data sources with single sign-on capabilities, C.tac provides quick and easy access to all of an agency's (or multiple agencies') data sources, all in one integrated, browser-based interface, as well as via native apps for iOS and Android.

Designed for multi-input operation (keyboard, mouse, touch), C.tac is at home on the desktop, a laptop, tablets or mobile devices. C.tac is de-coupled from the COBRA.net Core and accesses the data in the Core in exactly the same way as other BYOT tools, allowing C.tac to working seamlessly alongside other third-party analysis and reporting tools.

Feature Highlights:


One-Stop Search across ALL of your data sources

From one quick, efficient interface, search for any and all of your data available from data sources managed by COBRA.net. Select the sources you want to search, enter your search, and that's it.  C.tac and COBRA.net do the rest.  With ONE simple search, C.tac automatically searches all of your sources (both internal and external) at once and returns results in one consistent, easy to navigate view.

Single Sign-on

With C.tac's native single sign-on capabilities, it handles the different credentials for your data sources behind the scenes. Log-in to C.tac and C.tac can automatically pass credentials to the appropriate system transparently.

Highly Configurable User Interface

C.tac is highly flexible, based on a fluid data model that is configurable to meet the mission of any agency.  Users can also tailor the interface to match their use-style throughout C.tac with various options to save configurations.

Intuitive Searching

C.tac allows users to search the way they wish.  They can use configurable drop-downs, wildcards, and plain language parameters or a combination of all methods.  COBRA.net will translate it all into the appropriate search terms on-the-fly, across all sources.


The entire C.tac interface is browser-based with zero installed foot-print on any workstation and is designed to work on tablets, laptops, desktop workstations, etc.

Total Encryption

All data accessed through C.tac is safely encrypted at Federal Government FIPS 140-2 levels, meeting FBI CJIS requirements for data in transmit in mobile environments. 

Drill-down and Subscribe to people and other entities

More than just providing stripped down thumbnails or index cards on people, vehicles, organizations, etc., C.tac provides authorized users with a second level of 'drill-down' on any person, vehicle, organization or other entity's records, allowing users to see all relationships between that record and any/all other data across your COBRA.net network.  Also, if you need to keep track of a person or other entity, C.tac allows you to 'subscribe' to the entity and recieve text/email alerts when that entity is accessed or updated in any way.
