TREXA is the developer and manufacturer of Geodrone™, an electric unmanned ground vehicle designed for the $80 billion U.S. private and government security market. Human perimeter security patrols are expensive and inefficient, and the cars they operate on 24-hour patrol are generating CO2 emissions. Geodrone® perimeter security vehicles address these problems. The target markets for these vehicles include the commercial sector – private security contractors (PSCs) and internal security services, as well as government – private military contractors (PMCs), government installations, and law enforcement. Current prospects include the Santa Monica Police Department, U.S. Navy SPAWAR Point Loma, SIS (Silicon Valley tech campus protection), Spaceport America and John Wayne Airport.
TREXA’s patent pending hardware platform enables quick adaptation to changing customer application requirements and serves as a barrier to entry for competitors. The platform also enables lateral expansion into other unmanned categories. Competitive advantages also include our manufacturing partnership with Navistar (NYSE: NAV), agility as an R&D focused company, high performance vehicle design experience, and “co-opetition” approach with emerging tech companies.
PortTech EXPO 2012 is hosted by PortTechLA, a 501(c)(3) clean technology commercialization center and incubator program adjacent the Port of Los Angeles. The EXPO draws nearly 100 exhibitors, presenters and sponsors, and more than 300 business, industry, research and community leaders each year.
