Military PNT Conference

London, United Kingdom

We are proud to announce that the inaugural Military PNT conference will convene in London from the 18th - 19th May 2020 to provide an in depth view of satellite navigation technology.

With projections estimating that a 30-day GPS outage could cost US industry $45bn, the need for robust, resilient and secure PNT is a mission imperative for commanders across the Air Force, Army and Navy.

This takes added importance at a time when the Galileo constellation is starting to reach full operating capability, as GPS Block III satellites are set to be launched to keep the constellation functioning, and the UK is exploring Galileo alternatives in the wake of its leaving the European Union. There is a clear and pressing need for national militaries, industry partners and allied nations to come together and discuss how the Global Navigation Satellite Systems will be developed and employed.

With an anticipated 120+ attendees, 6 hours of networking and an extensive exhibition space, this year's conference will be an important forum to engage key players in this essential domain.
