PTTI 2016: Precise Time and Time Interval Meeting

The Precise Time and Time Interval Systems and Applications meeting is technical conference held each year for PTTI managers, system engineers and program planners. It will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Monterey, California on January 25 through 28. It is sponsored by the Institute of Navigation (ION).

In 2016, for the first time, PTTI will be co-located with the ION International Technical Meeting. Registration for one event entitles attendees to attend all sessions of both events.
