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.
Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) services have become an invisible but essential utility for many critical infrastructure operations.
S&T's Resilient PNT Conformance Framework will improve critical infrastructure’s ability to prevent, respond, and recover from GPS disruptions.
“The Department of Homeland Security recommended the FCC deny the Ligado license and remains concerned that an approval creates a high degree of uncertainty for our public and private sector partners."
DHS S&T announced today an opportunity for critical infrastructure owners & operators and Global Positioning System (GPS) equipment manufacturers to test their equipment against GPS spoofing.
DHS S&T has dedicated a multi‑year program to address GPS vulnerabilities in critical infrastructure, with a multi‑pronged approach,
The DHS Science and Technology Directorate’s Office for Public Safety Research (OPSR) applies multidisciplinary research and development to strengthen the safety and effectiveness of first responders, the Homeland Security Enterprise (HSE) and of state and local partners.
To address GPS vulnerabilities in critical infrastructure, S&T’s Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) Program has a multi-pronged approach of conducting vulnerability and impact assessments, developing mitigations, exploring complementary timing technologies, and engaging with industry through outreach events and meetings.
DHS S&T announced today an opportunity for manufacturers of Global Positioning System (GPS) equipment used in critical infrastructure to test their products against GPS jamming and spoofing.
Accurate position, navigation, and timing (PNT) is necessary for the functioning of many critical infrastructure sectors. Precision timing is one aspect that is particularly important, with one microsecond level or better synchronization often being required by numerous infrastructure systems, such as the electric grid, communication networks and financial institutions. Currently, the primary source of distributed and accurate timing information is through the Global Positioning System (GPS). However, GPS’ space-based signals are low-power and unencrypted, making them susceptible to both intentional and unintentional disruption.
