DHS S&T has dedicated a multi‑year program to address GPS vulnerabilities in critical infrastructure, with a multi‑pronged approach,
Accurate position, navigation and timing (PNT) is necessary for the functioning of many critical infrastructure sectors. Precision timing is particularly important and is mainly provided through the Global Positioning System (GPS). However, GPS’s space-based signals are low-power and unencrypted, making them susceptible to both intentional and unintentional disruption.
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.
