TRX Provides GPS-Denied Personnel Tracking in Tunnels for Blueforce at Operation Convergent Response 2018
TRX supported our partner Blueforce Development this past week at the second annual Operation Convergent Response (OCR) where Blueforce demonstrated how their Command Center solution improves situational awareness for first responders during incidents. OCR2018 was held at the Guardian Centers in Perry, Georgia; the 830-acre disaster preparedness and state-of-the-art training campus offered a realistic metroplex for many disaster response exercises. These disaster and crisis scenarios included a helicopter crash, nuclear detonation, earthquake, and active shooter incidents. TRX supported Blueforce in a subway terror attack scenario where a terrorist led a simulated attack that included a bomb and chemical release in a subway tunnel.

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.
