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’s Lou Martinage, Director of Product Management, will lead a session next week at NIST PSCR's Annual Public Safety Broadband Stakeholder Meeting. The virtual session, Building a GPS-Denied Location and Mapping Solution for First Responders, is open to the public and will take place on June 22nd at 2:30 PM EST. PSCR's Annual Stakeholder Meeting brings together representatives from public safety, federal agencies, industry, and academia. Register for free here.
Interested in working for an award-winning developer of products that provide location and mapping where GPS is unavailable? TRX’s GPS-denied location solutions deliver assured position in contested environments, support network coverage analysis, and enhance situational awareness for military, public safety, and security personnel. We’re expanding our development team to support accelerating demand for our technology.
TRX Systems is now delivering NEON technology for precise positioning of warfighters during live military training exercises. Seamless and accurate positioning of all personnel during training is critical to support new capabilities during direct and indirect fire and to enable detailed after-action review.
TRX’s NEON Signal Mapper solution is used by hundreds of organizations around the world for mapping signal and sensor data indoors and in other areas without GPS. The latest update to Signal Mapper was released this week with a new, dual mode functionality that significantly enhances data collection, visualization, and reporting capabilities and continues to drive down the cost to map signal and sensor data inside large buildings. Watch a short demonstration of the new dual mode feature here: https://youtu.be/IIsNxB7Sjss.
Join TRX for GPS-Denied Technology Demonstrations at Tech-Palooza in Red Springs, North Carolina on November 17th
TRX Systems will demonstrate its GPS-denied technologies developed for warfighters and first responders at the Tech-Palooza event on Tuesday, November 17th at the Emerging Technology Institute (ETI) in Red Springs, North Carolina. TRX joins leading technology companies Microsoft, IBM, Panasonic, Syncopated Engineering, and others demonstrating a broad range of technologies including Internet of Things, AI & Autonomy, Wearables, and Tag/Track/Locate Solutions. TRX will demonstrate its GPS-denied dismount personnel location, signal and sensor mapping and NEON Micro-Tracer, its newest solution for COVID-19 contact tracing and alerting.
Location data is paramount for the safety and situational awareness of our warfighters – to support this need at the U.S. Air Force’s Tech Warrior OPS event last October, TRX showcased the unique capability of the NEON GPS-Denied Location Solution to seamlessly track personnel in environments where GPS doesn’t work. Hosted by the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, TRX demonstrated the NEON solution’s ability to meet location and performance accuracy requirements in varying environments using a combination of body-worn sensors and ultra-wideband ranging technology. The system was demonstrated to seamlessly track personnel from outdoors where they might have GPS available into buildings and underground areas that are GPS-denied.
TRX Systems and VIAVI Solutions Broaden Partnership with the Addition of the VIAVI 5G Field Test Solutions
TRX announces the integration of NEON Signal Mapper with VIAVI CellAdvisor® 5G and OneAdvisor-800 real-time spectrum analyzers providing an automated solution that simplifies and dramatically reduces the time required for 4G-LTE and 5G-NR cellular coverage testing. The availability of this new combined solution provides automatic geo‐referencing and cloud data storage with innovative 3D visualization and reporting to validate 4G and 5G coverage and performance.
VIAVI CellAdvisor 5G and OneAdvisor-800 are innovative, comprehensive, and easy-to-use base station analyzers that are ideal field-portable solutions to validate and deploy 5G radio access networks. A short demonstration of the TRX-VIAVI CellAdvisor integrated solution can be viewed below:
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.
