PNT Architecture

National Security Space Office

National Positioning, Navigation, and Timing Architecture

Advanced Research is a participant in the National PNT Architecture conducted by the National Security Space Office involving 31 federal agencies.  We provide close support to the Department of Transportation’s Research and Innovative Technology Administration (DOT/RITA), one of the primary participants in this effort.

The Objective:

Provide more effective and efficient PNT capabilities focused on the 2025 time-frame and an evolutionary path for government-provided systems and services.  By consolidating the interests of all stakeholders, it is possible to exceed the normal course of events, addressing capability gaps and realizing efficiencies of operation, resulting in a better PNT arena for all users.


Who is Involved:

To give a better illustration of the wide-reaching nature of this endeavor the graphic below illustrates the governmental agencies involved.


How Work is Conducted:

The initial architecture development resulted in 19 recommendations.  To best address these recommendations, 19 individual work groups were formed to develop strategies and work plans for carrying forward the national architecture.  Advanced Research is an active member of recommendation work groups, 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 9, 10, 16, 17 and 19.
