The Army’s Project Manager Positioning, Navigation, and Timing’s (PM PNT) Dismounted team announced the accomplishment of a major milestone this month – completion of the Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (IOT&E) of the TRX DAPS GEN II solution.
This is exciting news, coming just a few weeks after TRX’s recent news release announcing that our DAPS GEN II solution is in production and shipping, just five months after a $402 Million Program of Record award from the U.S. Army.
TRX Systems announced today that it is now shipping the Dismounted Assured Positioning, Navigation, and Timing System Generation II (DAPS GEN II) solution, which provides Assured PNT to warfighters operating in GPS-denied environments. Just five months after the U.S. Army Program of Record award, the DAPS GEN II solution, known as TRX DAPS II, is in production and shipping.
In August, TRX Systems participated in the Sennybridge23 NavWar Trial conducted in Wales, United Kingdom (UK). Organized by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), which is part of the UK Ministry of Defence, this event gave participating organizations an invaluable opportunity to evaluate warfighter solutions in GNSS-denied conditions.
Along with partner Cascade Aviation & Marine (CAM), TRX was invited to Sennybridge23 to demonstrate and test its NEON PT-MIL solution. NEON PT-MIL extends the capabilities of ATAK-equipped warfighters, enabling them to better operate and maintain situational awareness in GNSS-denied situations.
Last week, TRX Systems participated in the 2023 Arctic Warrior Experiment (AWE-23) in Rena, Norway which sought new solutions for increasing warfighter capabilities in challenging Arctic environments. In conjunction with our partner, Precision Technic Defense (PTD), TRX was invited to AWE-23 to address the challenges of GNSS-denied operation and navigation.
TRX Systems is now shipping TRX DAPS devices in volume to the U.S. Army. In 2021, the Army selected TRX to deliver a next-generation DAPS solution enabling warfighters to better target, maneuver, and communicate in GPS-degraded or denied operational environments. Only eight months after the production contract award, TRX began delivering this Quick Reaction Capability (QRC) to the Army.
At the recent JNC 2022 conference in San Diego, TRX showcased how our NEON PT-MIL solution can help warfighters maintain situational awareness in GPS-denied environments.
As explained in this short video from the show, NEON PT-MIL provides dismounted soldiers with continuous and reliable position data, even when GPS/GNSS signals are unavailable or intentionally corrupted by jamming or spoofing attacks.
NextNav, a leader in next generation GPS, and TRX Systems, developer of NEON 3D location solutions, today announced the integration of their solutions to more reliably track the vertical location of first responders operating indoors. TRX Systems is leveraging NextNav’s Pinnacle service to complement and enhance the calculated elevation of its NEON Personnel Tracking solution.
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.
