Securing Position, Navigation & Timing - Additional Places Added

Posted on: 30/05/2018

Due to the high volume of registrations KTN have added additional places for the Securing Position, Navigation & Timing event on the 14th June.

The recently published Blackett report ‘Satellite-derived Time and Position: A Study of Critical Dependencies’ concludes “we must take steps to increase the resilience of our critical services in the event of GNSS disruption, including by adopting potential back-up systems where necessary”.

To this end, KTN are organising a technology focused seminar, “Securing Positioning, Navigation & Timing”, that is designed to explore collaboratively, with users and providers, the need for back-up systems across all sectors and the contribution that may be made by two wide area systems (STL and eLoran) mentioned in the London Economics report.

Sold out within a week of being announced, KTN has now added additional places to meet the high level of demand, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, the Royal Institute of Navigation. The free to attend event is being held on the 14th June in London, and is open to all with a professional interest in resilient PNT.

The event aims to provide:

  • Summary of the reports‚Äô recommendations and implications
  • Mutual understanding of technical needs and capabilities: open dialogue between users and providers
  • Briefings from the back-up system providers: status, pros, cons
  • Agree outline actions for assessment and potential for use of the systems
