Defense Strategies Institute is proud to announce the 3nd Annual Assured PNT Summit, occurring this May 10-11 in National Harbor, MD.

The 2023 Summit will bring together members of the Military Services, DoD, Federal Government, Industry and Academia in a town-hall style forum to discuss the latest developments of PNT systems and GPS alternatives.

With the ever-growing military, civil and commercial dependence on GPS, there is an increased potential for large-scale system vulnerabilities when signals are being jammed, denied or degraded. As PNT has become such a central component in our modern society and technology, ensuring its functionality is a national security priority. To this end, the 3rd annual Summit will 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.

The 2023 Assured PNT Summit will feature senior-level speakers including:

Gen David Thompson, USSF, Vice Chief, Space Operations, U.S. Space Force

VADM Frank Whitworth, Director, NGA

Maynard Holliday, SES, Deputy Chief Technology Officer, Critical Technologies, OUSD(R&E), DoD

ADM (Ret.) Thad W. Allen, USCG, Chairman, PNT Advisory Board
