Approved by U.S. Army, the I-Rail® platform is the basis of NATO Powered Rail standard
(Sterling, VA) –January 21, 2019 – T-Worx Holdings, LLC, a Virginia-based technology innovation company, and Silynx Communications, Inc., a global leader in ruggedized communications systems, today introduce the advanced capabilities of the Intelligent Rail® (I-Rail®) power and data rail technology platform – the first solution in decades for weapon modernization and situational awareness in a connected battleground. The technology can be seen at the Silynx booth #7310 at the Shot Show in Las Vegas.
Silynx’s wireless remote push-to-talk (PTT) capability embedded into the weapon using the T-Worx platform allows an operator to maintain contact with the rifle during radio communications which significantly minimizes risk to the operator and enhances real-time communications with the command center.
The latest version of the T-Worx Generation 6 I-Rail fully integrated AR-15 platform with the latest Silynx radio Push-to-Talk (PTT) capabilities will be demonstrated in the Silynx booth.
T-Worx is currently delivering this fully-integrated capability to the U.S. Army under the Soldier Enhancement Program. “Approved by the U.S. Army, the I-Rail platform is also the basis of the NATO STANAG 4740 Powered Rail standard, and has unique capabilities that will support tactical needs throughout the world,” said Don McLaughlin, President of T-Worx.
“Our goal is to optimize the advances in data technology and connectivity innovation to support the needs of armed forces and law enforcement. Our solutions help decrease complexity and increase situational awareness, which results in increased effectiveness and operational excellence,” continued McLaughlin.
Silynx and T-Worx intend to bring the technology to the tactical law enforcement community at the Shot Show and worldwide. The Intelligent Rail® technology enables weapons to be “smarter,” enabling real-time decision-making capabilities utilizing aggregated and shared data captured by the platform. The I-Rail’s patented platform powers, connects, and communicates data securely from rifles and accessories to command centers and other decision makers, both on-location and off.
