  • (1888PressRelease) February 03, 2021 - SMi Group’s Military PNT conference will convene online as a virtual conference on 17th – 18th May 2021 to provide a holistic overview of military PNT technology and to assess the future of PNT for the warfighter.

    Interested parties can register for the conference at:

    From precision targeting to navigation and situational awareness, accurate PNT is essential for effective modern military operations. Yet, as both near-peer and irregular adversaries are increasingly investing in electronic warfare technologies in a bid to jam, spoof or otherwise interfere with PNT signals, the loss of significant capability in future conflicts has become a real and present danger.

    It is now essential to ensure PNT technology is robust and resilient to counter these attacks.

    As it's such a crucial topic, Military PNT 2021 will have a strong focus on resilience by discussing how we can enhance the resilience and capability of warfighting PNT systems, with a number of international presentations dedicated to the topic:

    1) Robust Global Navigation System (R-GNS) and Main Lines of Effort in the UK MoD
    Commander Jason Strutt, SO1 Space, UK STRATCOM

    2) French PNT Requirements for Defence: Importance of Resilient PNT
    Commandant Marina Ballanger, Head of Navigation, Technical Division, DGA

    3) Italian MoD GNSS Updates and Work on Resilient PNT
