Threat of Navigation Warfare is driving development of Next generation Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing technologies

Purpose: The purpose of the A-PNT capability is to provide Army forces with unhindered access to trusted Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) under all conditions. Products: Assured PNT contains four (4) subprograms: Mounted PNT- robust integrated multi-sensor system for vehicular applications. Maintains an accurate PNT solution and distributes it to all users on the platform. Dismounted PNT – low-SWAP multi-sensor PNT system for the soldier. Pseudolites – Area protection for large numbers of users. Augments GPS with terrestrial transmission of a GPS-like navigation signal that can be used by military GPS receivers with the necessary software. Anti-Jam Antennas - Point protection for critical users. Enables GPS signal acquisition and tracking in challenged environments. Payoff: Assured PNT capability for Soldiers & combat systems. Ability to obtain and trust PNT information critical to complex combat operations. Ability to avoid or prevent unnecessary or accidental injury or destruction. Ability to seamlessly use advanced weapon systems and tactics. New as of 8 Nov 2012.

Systems like GPS, Russia’s GLONASS, China’s BeiDou, and Europe’s Galileo systems  are  Global Satellite Navigation Systems (GNSS) that provides real-time positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) data. The system provides critical navigation capabilities to military systems including UAVs, soldiers in the dark or in unfamiliar territory, missile and projectile guidance, target …

DARPA creating a Secure, Private Internet and Cloud for Warfighters at the tactical edge to quickly share current intelligence information and imagery on their mobile devices

CBMENWebfeature_619_316

Warfighters at the tactical edge are generally required to communicate with base facilities in order to report and retrieve new information about their locations, missions, and potential threats. With current communications technology, this critical operational content is not always immediately accessible nor distributable for warfighters who are outside of the …
