TRX Systems Awarded NIST Cooperative Agreement for Demonstration and Testing of NEON® Personnel Tracker with the Arlington County, VA Fire Department
TRX Systems announced today that it has been awarded funding through the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program (PSIAP) to test, validate, and harden the TRX NEON Personnel Tracker solution to support wide-scale public safety deployment. TRX is partnering with the Arlington County Fire Department (ACFD) to conduct extended testing during which the TRX 3D location technology will be used by all personnel at Station 5, serving Pentagon City and Crystal City, to validate usability and performance and to better align the solution with first responder needs.
Through a previous NIST PSIAP award, TRX improved the accuracy and capabilities of its NEON Personnel Tracker solution. With this subsequent Technical and Business Assistance (TABA) award, TRX will take the next steps toward wide-scale deployment by validating and tuning the NEON solution in a challenging live environment. Combined, these projects aim to accelerate the availability of improved 3D location accuracy, easy to use 3D map data tools, and actionable 3D visualizations for first responder use cases.
TRX Systems, developer of NEON® Indoor Location Solutions, announced today that it has been awarded a Phase II research contract by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, administered by the DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T), to deliver an In-Building Coverage and Analysis System (ICAS).
TRX Systems was awarded the $250,000 Grand Prize at the U.S. Army’s third Expeditionary Technology Search (xTechSearch 3) competition. TRX Systems was selected as the xTechSearch 3 Grand Prize winner by the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology (ASA(ALT)) at the virtual xTech Summit held Sept. 9-11, 2020.
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 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.
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. TRX’s NEON® GPS-denied dismount PNT solution was one of 12 finalists selected from over 125 new technologies that were evaluated by the Army. Each of the winning solutions was awarded a $120,000 prize at the 2019 AUSA Annual Meeting and Expo at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
The first half of 2019 has been a time of exciting growth, development, and outreach for TRX Systems.

This new partnership connects TRX to Samsung technology and business teams so that we can tailor our NEON Indoor Location Solutions to better meet the needs of our end users. TRX now has access to a number of important Samsung tools including:
TRX Systems Featured at DARPA 60th Anniversary Symposium – Keeping Warfighters, First Responders, and the Public Safe with GPS-Denied Location
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.
TRX Awarded Multi-Year Contract by the U.S. Department of Transportation to Deliver Accessible Navigation and Routing
