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.
Fully integrated with Blueforce Command as it provided real-time personnel monitoring and improved situational awareness, TRX’s NEON Location Service delivered GPS-denied location data inside the tunnel during the four-day exercise. TRX’s solution enabled the Blueforce to georeference multiple types of body worn sensor data and video feeds, including feeds from dog handlers and hazmat personnel responding to the incident, in this GPS-denied environment.
