FirstNet, Indoor Location Innovation Highlighted at 2018 NIST Public Safety Broadband Stakeholder Meeting
Recently, TRX Systems attended the 2018 NIST Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) Public Safety Broadband Stakeholder Meeting. TRX was awarded a grant from the Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program (PSIAP) in June of last year. During this meeting, TRX presented last year’s new capability developments and made TRX’s latest NEON Personnel Tracker application for attendee use and evaluation throughout the 2.6 million square foot venue. The Stakeholders Meeting was an excellent forum to engage with a wide variety of public safety stakeholders – including early adopters within state, local, and federal departments responsible for safeguarding and securing the population. TRX also had a chance to catch up on the latest FirstNet news and research by other PSIAP grantees including research into next generation ranging, inertial silicon, and location constraint sources.
Next week, the TRX team will be in San Diego for the 2018 PSCR Public Safety Broadband Stakeholder Meeting from June 5-8. Carol Politi, TRX’s President and CEO, and Jeff Kunst, TRX’s VP of Product Development, will be speaking at the meeting about the progress on TRX’s NIST PSIAP grant that was announced at this same event last year. The grant to TRX is focused on research and development of technology that will deliver more robust and higher accuracy 3D location for first responders and enhanced 3D visualization tools for on-site and remote commanders. The project includes development of new mapping tools as well as use case validation, field testing and feedback with first responders in Harris County, TX and Arlington, VA.
This week, TRX Systems will exhibit at the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) with our partner Black Tree Group from May 22-24th in Tampa Florida. We will be showcasing the latest updates to our NEON Personnel Tracker solution for the 10,000 defense industry professionals attending SOFIC. We hope that you will visit us in the Black Tree booth #1349.

This past week, at the Government API Meetup in Washington DC, TRX Systems' CEO Carol Politi spoke about TRX NEON products (and associated APIs) that deliver location for public safety applications. Public safety personnel often operate indoors, underground, and within other "GPS-denied areas". NEON's location service is designed to enable location-based applications to keep working in these areas. During the meetup, Carol had the opportunity to discuss public safety applications and requirements with David Berlind, editor in Chief of ProgrammableWeb. The full transcript of the interview can be found here or listen to the interview at:
Next week, CTO Carole Teolis will be featured as a keynote speaker at the US Small Business Administration Innovation Research Road Tour in Honolulu, Hawaii. The two-day conference, hosted by the Hawaii Technology Development Corporation (HTDC), provides TRX Systems with a great opportunity to meet with federal funding program managers and discuss our NEON Indoor Location Solutions. You can catch Carole speaking twice on the first day of the conference (September 18th):
Earlier this week, the TRX Systems team formed an action cluster at the 2017 Global City Teams Challenge (GCTC) to showcase our NEON Indoor Location Solutions. GCTC featured more than 300 companies, universities, non-profits, and federal government agencies who have created action clusters and demonstrated how these projects have impacted their cities and communities.

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.
