TRX Systems, developer of NEON® GPS-denied location solutions, has been selected by the U.S. Army to provide a next-generation Dismounted Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) System (DAPS).
The TRX DAPS solution employs a lightweight soldier-worn device that enables dismounted warfighters to successfully conduct operations when operating in GPS challenged, degraded, or denied environments.
Military equipment can be the subject of enemy electronic attacks, potentially resulting in a loss of location awareness that can put Army missions at increased risk. The TRX DAPS solution alerts the user when their position isn’t reliable and then leverages multiple sensors and timing sources to provide the best soldier position possible within the GPS degraded operational environment. The solution is designed to replace the Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR) with support for both a standalone configuration and integration with the Nett Warrior ensemble.
The TRX DAPS solution leverages the company’s proven experience in delivering GPS-denied location technology to thousands of military, public safety, and security users worldwide. The solution combines inputs from small, body-worn sensors and other sources to provide assured PNT while meeting the challenging Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) needs of dismounted soldiers already physically burdened with heavy equipment loads.
Maintaining assured PNT is paramount to the situational awareness of U.S. warfighters in the many conflict zones around the world. When initial units are fielded in mid-2022, the TRX DAPS solution will deliver a balance of the highest possible level of integrated PNT capabilities with the smallest package that can be fielded for dismounted warfighters.
