TRX Systems Awarded DHS S&T Research Contract for Public Safety In-Building Coverage Analysis Solution
TRX announced today that it has been awarded a Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) research contract to deliver an In-building Coverage and Analysis System using a first responder's radio and smartphone. The solution will quickly inform public safety users about wireless service availability within a building and in other GPS-denied areas and enable the easy identification of communication coverage gaps within specific buildings and across a total service area.
TRX Systems has relocated its headquarters to accommodate the company’s growth and to provide expanded laboratory, prototyping, test, and training facilities.
TRX’s new facility is located in the center of the Baltimore-Washington corridor, providing convenient access to TRX customers – including those within federal agencies and the US Army – and to TRX Systems integrator, technology, and university partners. Only a few miles from the University of Maryland College Park, the new location is convenient to UMCP’s Clark School of Engineering, a top 25 engineering school, as well as the area’s other top universities.

TRX Systems has been selected by the U.S. Army to deliver a prototype tactical electronic warfare kit for dismounted soldiers. As the first contract awarded from the Army Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office’s (RCCTO) first Innovation Day, TRX Systems will provide a portable kit that enables alerts when electronic jamming or spoofing is detected and will provide a "rewind" navigation feature to estimate the user's probable current position after jamming or spoofing has occurred.
SAF Tehnika and TRX Systems announced today the integration of our NEON® Signal Mapper application with SAF’s hand-held spectrum analyzer series (Spectrum Compact). The new SAF-TRX integrated solution uses NEON Signal Mapper to deliver real-time geo-referenced signal data that can be visualized both locally by the user and remotely on a 3D display.
This new in-building signal testing solution leverages the Spectrum Compact’s exceptional measurement accuracy and industry-leading noise floor (-128dB) to provide a complete picture of the RF environment. A short video of the SAF-TRX Signal Mapper solution can be viewed below:
TRX was awarded a contract from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to demonstrate TRX’s NEON® Personnel Tracker application in an assessment of mature technologies that are available for backup Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) services in the event of a disruption to GPS. DOT awarded a total of more than $2.5 million to 11 companies that are capable of providing backup PNT solutions for critical infrastructure if GPS is temporarily unavailable. Supported by DOT’s Volpe National Transportation Center, NEON Personnel Tracker will be used to provide location of personnel operating in GPS-denied environments in support of a broad number of use cases during the technology demonstrations planned for March 2020.
Last month, TRX Systems was selected as a U.S. Army xTechSearch 3.0 Phase IV finalist by the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology.
