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 will review 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 will also consider 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.
