Past event: Assured PNT Summit 2023

Enhancing Reliable and Secure PNT Technologies Across All Domains

Our 3rd Annual Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing (APNT) Summit will bring together members of the Military Services, DoD, Federal Government, Industry and Academia in a town-hall style forum to discuss the latest developments of PNT systems and GPS alternatives. PNT is a critical enabler for all warfighting functions across all domains and ensures the central component of situational awareness to the Warfighter: accurate and trusted positioning.

Topics covered at the 2023 Summit:

  • Looking Towards the Future: Driving PNT Advisory Board Recommendations
  • Highlighting DoD's Nexus of PNT: Policy, Technology and Operations
  • Civil PNT Perspective: Adopting Complementary Sources of PNT into End-User Applications for Increased Safety-Critical Transportation Resiliency
  • Promoting the Responsible Use of U.S. Space-Based PNT Services and Capabilities
  • Ensuring Satellite Technology is Equipped with PNT Guarding Against Vulnerabilities
  • Shaping Army's Strategy Toward Providing Survivable, Responsive and Resilient PNT Intelligence to the Warfighter
  • Addressing the Increase in Jamming and Spoofing: How PNT is at the Forefront of the Ukraine War Efforts

Why You Should Attend This Summit:

The PNT technology market is estimated to reach an $8.8 billion market value by 2031, driving the sector to evolve at a rapid pace across all domains. PNT resiliency is critical to U.S. National Security, our nation's critical infrastructure and civilian safety. Our 3rd Annual Assured PNT Summit aims to address developments in PNT capabilities such as identifying key aspects for new GPS receivers, the progress and deployment of the NTS-3 satellites, utilizing the Mounted Assured PNT System (MAPS) to provide accurate and trusted PNT to the Warfighter, & facilitating increased PNT resilience across all modes of transportation.

This program will also include a timely panel discussion on how the Ukraine War has brought navigation tool vulnerabilities to the surface because of the heightened jamming and spoofing attacks.

Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposiums' content and focus areas. We assemble the most respected minds in the PNT communities, as well as the key policymakers across military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
