TRX Systems gets contract for GPS spoof countermeasure

A Greenbelt developer of location technology has been selected by the U.S Army to deliver a prototype electronic warfare kit for dismounted soldiers.

TRX Systems Inc. will provide a portable kit that enables alerts when electronic jamming or spoofing of GPS is detected, the company announced. The kit will provide a “rewind” navigation feature to estimate the user’s probable current position after jamming or spoofing has occurred, TRX said in a news release.

The contract to deliver the prototype was the first awarded from the Army Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office’s first innovation day, according to TRX.

The prototype will use TRX’s Neon Location Service, which can detect GPS interference and provide location data.

Carol Politi, president and CEO of TRX Systems, said in a news release that the electronic warfare kit provides a real-time assessment of GPS integrity for the warfighter, integrated with existing military applications and systems.
