TRX Systems Selected by Department of Transportation to Provide GPS-Denied Location Technology
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.
TRX’s NEON® technology can operate independently of GPS/GNSS and provides seamless position of personnel operating in both naturally and intentionally GPS-denied environments. TRX’s NEON® Location Service is an Android application that utilizes multiple sensors, map data, and RF constraints to calculate a user’s location both indoors and out. DOT will assess technologies in scenarios with static and dynamic platforms, varied services areas and use cases. DOT will be looking at 2D and 3D positioning as well as timing and tiered levels of service. NEON® will be demonstrated in multiple scenarios and configurations including using TRX’s commercial, cloud-based service with the NEON Personnel Tracker Application as well as an “offline” configuration integrated with the U.S. Government’s ATAK application which is commonly used by military and federal personnel.
