Orolia Joins US Defense Resilient PNT Panel Ensuring Superiority on the Battlefield


Rochester, NY, Oct. 27, 2020 – Orolia Defense & Security will join public and private sector defense leaders, including keynote speaker U.S. Army Assured Position, Navigation and Timing (APNT) Cross-Functional Team Director Mr. Willie Nelson, in a panel discussion on Ensuring PNT Superiority on the Future Battlefield. Other panelists include representatives from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), Booz Allen Hamilton and MITRE.

The U.S. military plays a world-leading role in deploying the latest technologies for continuous, accurate and reliable communications, mission timing and synchronization, and intelligence resources. Since the deployment of GPS, GNSS signals have multiplied and become essential data transmitters. They are also a single point of failure that has created the need for Resilient PNT. 

The global proliferation of GPS/GNSS signal jamming and spoofing means that today’s military systems must achieve mission success through accurate PNT data, even in GPS denied environments. This panel discussion, hosted by the Potomac Officers Club, will explore how industry and government can work together to deploy Resilient PNT technologies on existing and future military systems.
