The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) published the Resilient Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) Conformance Framework today. PNT services, such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), is a national nice office that enables many applications within the nice infrastructure sectors. This framework will enlighten the design and adoption of resilient PNT systems and help nice infrastructure befit more resilient to PNT disruptions, such as GPS jamming and spoofing.
“This is an significant milestone in the section’s strategy for edifice PNT resilience in our nation’s nice infrastructure,” said Willian Bryan, DHS Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Under Secretary for Science and Technology. “Combined with our collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on PNT risk profiles, the Conformance Framework will be a precious risk treatment tool.”
