This webinar will explore the US defense perspective on protecting Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) data for critical infrastructure, which is now a national priority through the PNT Executive Order. Speakers from government and industry will discuss PNT-reliant defense applications and the importance of vulnerability testing to protect against GPS/GNSS jamming, spoofing and other PNT interference. They will also address the collaborative process that takes place between government and industry to protect PNT systems, and improvements on the horizon.
