NEON Personnel Tracker Military
Accurate location information is essential for effective navigation, situational awareness, targeting, and tracking. GPS and other GNSS sources may be denied in triple canopy, urban canyon, subterranean environments and indoors, and can be easily jammed and intentionally denied. NEON Personnel Tracker uses a suite of patented algorithms to fuse inertial sensor data, multi-GNSS (including resilient sources), warfighter waypoint check-ins, and ultra-wideband (UWB) shared constraints, along with position data from third party sources (e.g. pseudolites and external ranging inputs) to deliver reliable location and tracking even in the presence of intentionally denied GNSS signals.
NEON PT-MIL is deployed as an Android Location Service with a small, body worn tracking accessory (NEON Offline Tracking Unit) on each dismount user. The NEON API allows this configuration to be easily integrated as a subsystem of an overall PNT architecture that extends operations when dismounted personnel are operating in naturally or intentionally denied environments. NEON is integrated with ATAK-MIL (Android Tactical Assault Kit), an Android UI and mapping engine which allows for targeting, navigation, and generalized situational awareness, via an easy to use plug-in architecture.
