Making Military PNT Systems More Resilient: Recent Advances

Spectracom, an Orolia brand and the global leader in resilient PNT (RPNT) solutions, has announced the availability of a new white paper focusing on recent advances in hardening military PNT systems. The proliferation of GNSS-degrading and denying devices across state and non-state actors can put soldiers and communications systems in jeopardy. Traditional PNT devices utilize various alternative internal components to maintain holdover of the PNT data during loss of GNSS input, but are susceptible to drift over time.

The white paper details evolving technologies to make PNT systems more resilient, and covers:

  • Evolution of Assured PNT
  • A Recap of GNSS: Strengths and Weaknesses
  • Examples of Jamming and Spoofing
  • Interference Detection and Mitigation
  • Smart Reference Monitoring Software
  • STL - Satellite Time and Location Solutions
  • Interference Testing

Authored by noted industry expert John Fischer, vice president of advanced research and development at Spectracom, and Hendrik van Edig, documentation engineer, the white paper is written for technical and non-technical professionals involved in planning, designing and deploying PNT systems. Resilient PNT systems are used where even the smallest discrepancy in data accuracy, availability and stability can result in a mission failure, loss of life, or battlefield disadvantages, and significant economic loss.
