SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NextNav, a leader in next generation GPS, and TRX Systems, developer of NEON 3D location solutions, today announced the integration of their solutions to more reliably track the vertical location of first responders operating indoors. TRX Systems is leveraging NextNav’s Pinnacle service to complement and enhance the calculated elevation of its NEON Personnel Tracking solution.        First responders typically operate inside buildings and in other facilities where access to reliable GPS is limited.

By incorporating the locally calibrated, network-based Z-axis data available from NextNav Pinnacle, the two companies intend to deliver even more precise floor level accuracy to the public safety community.

Key Points: 
  • TRX Systems is leveraging NextNavs Pinnacle service to complement and enhance the calculated elevation of its NEON Personnel Tracking solution .
  • Z-axis has a vital role to play in delivering greater situational awareness and improving incident response times and outcomes.
