As the threat landscape continues to evolve, modern forces and especially foot mounted soldiers are increasingly tasked with conducting operations in either complex urban or remote cavernous environments where GPS signals are severely corrupted and/or unusable. The ability to track and navigate in… More

Handheld Apps for Warfighters

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Carol Politi, CEO – (301) 313-0053
Award Amount: $148,348.00
Abstract:
As military operations move to urban, cavernous, foliage covered or indoor environments, position navigation and time information becomes more difficult and in some cases impossible to deduce from GPS signals alone. Under the proposed effort TRX will develop and implement an Android-based… More
