Acoustic Test Facility

Progeny Systems operates an open water acoustic test barge that is permanently moored in the Bay State Quarry in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Progeny's facility is capable of performing a full spectrum of high and low frequency acoustic measurements, which are conducted in accordance with the ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994 Quality System.

Precision Navigation and Time (PNT)

The Moon and Mars are GPS-denied environments, but not for long. Progeny's engineering team created a navigation system for NASA that uses the IEEE Precision Time Protocol (PTP), a time service that provides an accurate common time base between radio towers and mobile systems (Lunar Rover, Curiosity) and simplifies location/navigation processing. Progeny's solution creates GPS-quality navigation capabilities to use on other planets. More information on this effort can be viewed here.
