TRX Systems, Inc. announced it is one of 18 companies to receive the Tibbetts Award. This award is presented to participating companies in the SBA's Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) that represent "beacons of promise and models of excellence in high technology". The criteria for the selecting of winners are based on the economic impact of their technological innovation; practicing diverse participation in technological innovation; and increasing the commercialization of federal research.
The TRX indoor location system uses sensor fusion and mapping technology to deliver precision personnel location in indoor environments without pre-installed infrastructure. This technology delivers safety to first responders and navigational support for soldiers and urban training operations in locations that are GPS-denied.
TRX development support has included Small Business Innovation Research Program grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and the US Army. TRX is a team member on the Department of Homeland Security Geospatial Location Accountability and Navigation System for Emergency Responders (GLANSER) program as well as the Globe Wearable Advance Sensor Platform (WASP) which is managed and funded by the US Army Natick.
"Receiving the Tibbetts Award is a great honor," said Carole Teolis, CTO and co-founder of TRX Systems. "The SBIR program is a critical engine fueling innovation and development in areas where technical risk is higher than would be supported by the private markets."
