MTA Press Demo of Next Generation Positioning System Integrated with Ultra-Wideband Pilot Program

On January 23, 2020, the MTA, in partnership with Thales and Piper Networks, successfully demonstrated the results of a nine-month pilot project to develop new technologies that deliver subway services faster and more reliably.

New York City Transit (NYCT) selected Thales to lead the Train Control System Pilot Program, in partnership with Piper, to determine the feasibility of Ultra-Wideband (UWB) enabled signaling technologies, fully integrated with Communications Based Train Control (CBTC). With a smaller technology footprint, this new train control technology has the potential to reduce the subway modernization timeline.
