Assured PNT Summit 2024

Advancong a Resilient and Accurate Next-Gen GPS Enterprise

May 29-30, 2024 - Washington, DC, United States

The 4th 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 2024 Summit:

  • Driving Collaborative PNT Efforts: Proliferated Warfighter Space Architecture
  • Supporting Federal Policy Governing PNT Programs for Civil Application
  • Promoting PNT Technology Experimentation and Testing Across the DOD
  • The Potentially Dire Consequences of Lacking U.S. Resilience Across Space and APNT
  • Driving PNT Technology Experimentation and Testing Across the U.S. Army
  • Advancing USAF PNT Security, Resilience and Accuracy Capabilities by Augmenting Existing GNSS
  • Driving Affordability and Speed to PNT Capabilities Across Maritime Services are Key Drivers

Why You Should Attend This Summit:

The 4th 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 with a thematic emphasis on Protect, Toughen and Augment (PTA). The immediate and long-term success of PNT technologies and application rely on the three elements of PTA: protect by detecting and terminating interference, toughen with enhanced antennas, software and hardware to resist attacks and anomalies, and augment by refining new signal detection, complementary PNT and GNSS signal monitoring.

Funding has steadily increased across the Armed Services to support maintenance and operation of GPS satellites, to develop hi-tech systems and programs, and to continue R&D of the highest caliber. The NDAA for FY24 has allocated at least $1.61B across development and prototypes, procurement and RDET for APNT navigation systems. The Army concluded its 5th PNT Assessment experiment to evaluate new tools and systems, while concurrently driving commercial partnerships upwards of $500M to roll out jam resistant technology and SATCOM.

At this Summit, attendees will have the opportunity to hear and engage with Senior level leaders from across the Services and Federal Government discussing the importance of GPS alternatives, as they are applicable across federal, military and civil operations. The newly minted PNT Integrated Mission Delta will further explore PNT in space and why the U.S. is at a critical point in this sector. This year's panel will highlight the tensions the U.S. and Taiwan face across China and how establishing norms is crucial to a peaceful way forward.

At Our Summit You Have the Ability To:

  • Gain Education & Insight: Walk away with knowledge gained from our senior level speakers on some of the complex challenges facing our PNT communities.
  • Build Partnerships: The agenda is designed to allow for ample networking opportunities and the ability to engage in constructive dialogue among all in attendance.
  • Influence: Help foster ideas. Share your own insight and knowledge during our interactive sessions. All attendees are encouraged to address our speaker faculty and each other with their questions, comments or ideas.
