NEON® Personnel Tracker Solution Used By Houston Police to Ensure Public Safety During Super Bowl LI
Today, TRX announced that the NEON Personnel Tracker application was used by the Houston Police to ensure public safety in NRG Stadium for Super Bowl LI. TRX’s indoor location technology delivered seamless 3D tracking of Houston Police inside NRG Stadium, by improving situational awareness and command effectiveness.
TRX has partnered with PCTEL, a leading global supplier of wireless network antenna and testing solutions, to introduce the first scanning receiver-based cellular network test and measurement solution with automated indoor/outdoor geo-referencing. With this new PCTEL-TRX solution, engineers will be able to easily collect and geolocate RF data where GPS signals are not available. The new network testing solution integrates TRX’s NEON® Signal Mapper 3D location and mapping solution with PCTEL’s SeeHawk® Touch test and measurement software and IBflex® scanning receivers.
This week, TRX Systems will be attending and demonstrating our technology at NSF’s event “The Arc of Science: Research to Results.” Hosted February 15th by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF), the event will display research in areas related to the economy, security, and global competitiveness and leadership. TRX will be alongside other NSF-funded researchers at the Rayburn House rooms B338 and B339 in Washington D.C.
A DARPA program, called SIGMA, aimed at preventing attacks involving radiological “dirty bombs” and other nuclear threats has successfully developed and demonstrated a network of smartphone-sized mobile devices that can detect the tiniest traces of radioactive materials. A key feature of the SIGMA architecture is that it allows for automated, real-time detection, identification and tracking of nuclear threats with continuous situational awareness via web-based command and control interfaces. More details can be found here.
TRX has partnered with Tektronix to deliver a NEON® Signal Mapper solution that supports Tektronix spectrum analyzers. With this newly integrated solution, NEON Signal Mapper can be wirelessly connected to Tektronix's RSA306 and RSA500 Series spectrum analyzer solutions such that measurement data is automatically geo-referenced indoors, underground and in other GPS-denied environments. Signal Mapper provides 3D mapping, tracking and visualization as well as report generation capabilities that can dramatically reduce the time needed to signal map a building.
