USING MILITARY NAVIGATION RADIOS TO ENHANCE TRANSIT DISPATCHING SYSTEMS

Via the federal Technology Reinvestment Program, an existing military integrated position-location and communication system based on networked spread-spectrum radios is being adapted to satisfy safety-critical operational requirements for train location and control in railroad and transit applications. Radios installed on trains, at wayside locations, and at control stations, participate in a synchronous time-slotted network, enabling location determination in conjunction with reliable transfer of control information.
