PNT Makes the World Go Around: The UK’s New Alternative PNT Strategy

There has never been a clearer and more widespread acknowledgement of PNT vulnerability. With its new strategy for ensuring the continuity of positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) services, the United Kingdom adds considerable impetus to a trend that has already witnessed new determination on the parts of the United States and the European Union to assess real, alternative PNT (A-PNT) and/or complimentary PNT (CPNT) solutions.

All Jammed Up, DOT Urgently Seeks Complementary PNT

For years, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has been exploring the technologies and systems necessary to provide positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) services to complement the Global Positioning System (GPS) so that these critical services remain available even when GPS signals are disrupted. In the past few months, the department has ramped up these Complementary PNT (CPNT) efforts, from its issuance of a CPNT Action Plan in September to a related Request for Information (RFI) seeking industry input on CPNT technologies. What are these efforts, how are they going and why the sense of urgency now?
