Key Attributes

Making Weapons Smart

T-Worx Holdings, LLC is a technology and licensing company based in Sterling, VA that has developed the Intelligent Rail® (I-Rail®) platform — a patented platform technology that powers, connects, and communicates data from rifles and accessories to command centers on and off the battlefield. The discrete data broadcasts from the I-Rail® platform feed analytics on ground troop movement, their actions and events, and enables high-resolution video streamed in real time. Now the NATO standard, the I-Rail® is to be the standardized powered rail technology on the next generation of weapons and enablers.

SBIR Phase III Success

T-Worx started the Intelligent Rail® development effort with a US Army Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I contract in early 2008. Following the successful SBIR Phase I effort, T-Worx received a SBIR Phase II R&D contract which resulted in prototype systems and successful live-fire testing demonstrations for the US Army. Recognizing the importance of the Intelligent Rail® technology, the US Army selected T-Worx for a highly competitive SBIR Commercialization Pilot Program (CPP) contract, followed by an SBIR Phase II Enhancement Contract. The T-Worx team achieved rare SBIR Phase III status with successful integration on the Army NGSAR and now NGSW programs. We are preparing for volume production and we look forward to further weapon, enabler and battlefield network integration activities.
