Keynote: Resilient PNT for Transportation Applications
May 20 | 10:05 am - 10:30 am
- Karen Van Dyke - Director, Positioning, Navigation, and Timing and Spectrum Management, Department of Transportation
Reliable Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) capabilities are essential for safety for all modes of transportation and will become increasingly important for automated vehicles. As technology advances, and GPS has become an essential part of critical infrastructure applications, so have the number of threats facing GPS. Two of these threats are jamming and spoofing. <br><br>
DOT recently conducted a demonstration of GPS Backup and Complementary PNT technologies. Eleven technology vendors capable of providing positioning, navigation, and/or timing in a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) disrupted or denied environment and having a technology readiness level (TRL 6 or higher) were selected to participate in the technology demonstration. <br><br>
This talk will provide an overview of the technology demonstration which will help inform viable GPS backup and Complementary PNT solutions to ensure critical infrastructure will be protected in the future, as required by the recent Executive Order, EO 13905, Strengthening National Resilience through Responsible Use of Positioning, Navigation, and Timing Services.
