Why You Should Attend This Summit:

DSI’s 2022 Assured PNT Summit will provide the Military Services, DoD, Federal Government, Research Labs, Industry, and Academia the opportunity to discuss ways to modernize and advance the development and integration of resilient, secure PNT systems. This year’s Summit will explore the nation’s civil, commercial, and military infrastructures that depend on GPS and GNSS and efforts to develop alternative and complementary sources of PNT for a more varied, robust defense.

PNT has become such a central component in our modern society and technology that ensuring its functionality is a national security priority. Because the U.S. relies on GPS as our main source of PNT, a disruption or degradation of the service could significantly disrupt the proper functioning of our financial, health, electrical grid, transportation, and military operations. The 2022 PNT Summit will discuss what the future of PNT innovation looks like as we attempt to strengthen GPS and deliver alternative sources for when it is contested or denied.

Join us at the 2022 PNT Summit to hear leaders from across the services explore methods for assuring access to resilient, robust PNT to maintain the continuity of daily operations and the execution of all joint force missions. The event will discuss what the services are doing to deliver on the Senate Armed Services Committee’s order to provide an alternative source of PNT to Combatant Commanders by 2023, and this year’s Assured PNT Summit panel will bring together industry members to discuss the opportunities for collaboration in developing space based PNT systems and ways to foster a responsible use of PNT. Attendees at this year’s event will have the unique opportunity to discuss, ask questions, and share comments on how to deliver navigational warfare capabilities to combatant commanders, build anti-jamming satellites and GPS signals, pursue modular open systems architectures for interoperability, and strengthening the resiliency of the PNT enterprise.

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.
