The JNC 2016 – Joint Navigation Conference will take place June 6-9, 2016 at the Dayton Convention Center in Dayton, Ohio. The annual event covers military navigation technology, "the Foundation for Military Ops."

The JNC is the largest endorsed U.S. military Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) conference of the year with both service and government participation. It will focus on technical advances in PNT with emphasis on joint development, test and support of affordable PNT systems, logistics and integration. From an operational perspective the conference will focus on advances in battlefield applications of GPS; critical strengths and weaknesses of field navigation devices; PNT requirements and solutions for combatants; and navigation warfare.

Technical topics:

  • Alternate Navigation Technologies 1: Naturally Occurring Measurement Sources – including gravity, magnetic fields, lightning and celestial navigation
