DHS S&T announced an opportunity for Critical Infrastructure Owners & Operators (CI O&O) and GPS equipment manufacturers to test their equipment against GPS disruption and spoofing.
The Resilient PNT Reference Architecture continues where the Conformance Framework left off by describing a concrete application of resilience concepts for a holistic approach to next-generation resilient PNT. It provides example implementations of resilience techniques as well as reference designs of architecture instances that align with the resilience levels within the Resilient PNT Conformance Framework.
DHS S&T announced that it has published a GPS Receiver Whitelist Development Guide and a new release of the Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) Integrity Library to protect against the spoofing, or deceiving, of GPS devices through false signals.
Historically, Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers have been considered single-purpose appliances like radios that required very focused, application-specific hardware but placed less emphasis on software. In contrast, today’s receivers are implemented and integrated as embedded software applications distributed over general purpose processors with special GPS hardware.
DHS S&T transitioned the Resilient Positioning, Navigation, and Timing Conformance Framework to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers to further refine into international industry standards.
DHS S&T announced today it has published the Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) Integrity Library and Epsilon Algorithm Suite to protect against Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) spoofing, or deceiving a Global Positioning System (GPS) device through false signals.
DHS 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 critical function that enables many applications within the critical infrastructure sectors.
S&T's Resilient PNT Conformance Framework will improve critical infrastructure’s ability to prevent, respond, and recover from GPS disruptions.
