Resilient PNT for Unmanned Systems

Demand for unmanned systems is growing exponentially across defense and civil/commercial organizations, for applications ranging from military missions and intelligence surveillance to border security and precision agriculture. 

Resilient Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) data and GPS/GNSS signals are critical for unmanned systems in order to successfully pilot and control aircraft, vehicle and vessel onboard systems. 


PNT also plays an essential role in giving context to data collected by unmanned systems, through precise time stamps and geo-stamps. The accuracy of this PNT data is critical for mission success, often requiring geo-stamp accuracy within a few centimeters and time stamps within nanoseconds.


This webinar reviews the role of PNT, unmanned system ecosystem risks caused by GNSS vulnerabilities, and available technologies that can ensure greater resiliency, protection and safety for unmanned missions. It also considers how industry can support agencies such as FAA, DHS and DOT to ensure that unmanned systems operating environments are not compromised by GNSS interference or attacks. 


Topics include:

  • The role of resilient Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) in unmanned systems
  • Common DHS and DOT government applications for unmanned systems 
  • Vulnerabilities and threats to unmanned operations
  • Challenges associated with protecting unmanned system assets and flight zones
  • Industry perspective on available Resilient PNT technologies to protect unmanned systems
