Why You Should Attend This Summit:

The PNT technology market is estimated to reach an $8.8 billion market value by 2031, driving the sector to evolve at a rapid pace across all domains. PNT resiliency is critical to U.S. National Security, our nation’s critical infrastructure and civilian safety. DSI’s 3rd Annual Assured PNT Summit aims to address developments in PNT capabilities such as identifying key aspects for new GPS receivers, the progress and deployment of the NTS-3 satellites, utilizing the Mounted Assured PNT System (MAPS) to provide accurate and trusted PNT to the Warfighter, & facilitating increased PNT resilience across all modes of transportation.

This program will also include a timely panel discussion on how the Ukraine War has brought navigation tool vulnerabilities to the surface because of the heightened jamming and spoofing attacks.

DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposiums' content and focus areas. We assemble the most respected minds in the PNT communities, as well as the key policymakers across military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
