Military PNT Conference 2020

Military PNT Conference 2020

Following Brexit, the UK was forced to leave the EU's Galileo programme, meaning it needs to find an alternative Global Navigation Satellite System.

There were plans to develop a sovereign system, which would cost upwards of £4bn, but the UK is now considering a different approach.

Boris Johnson has pledged to invest £500m in OneWeb, which currently has 74 satellites in low-earth orbit and plans for several hundred more. With this, it has the ability to deliver the same civil and military PNT capabilites as Galileo and GPS. If the bid is successful, the UK will end up with more than 20% ownership of OneWeb, meaning this could be a fitting alternative to Galileo or a sovereign system.

Given that this is a crucial time for UK GNSS, Military PNT 2020 will include presentations from UK experts to provide an overview of British satellite navigation technology and to explore the present and future of UK PNT.

With this in mind, SMi Group are delighted to announce that Squadron Leader Mark Lynch, Beyond Line Of Sight Desk Officer & SO2 SATCOM and PNT, UK Strategic Command, UK MoD, will be presenting an exclusive briefing at the upcoming Military PNT conference, which will take place in London on 19th – 20th October 2020.

Squadron Leader Lynch’s presentation, "Robust Global Navigation System - Providing the Backbone of Capability for the UK MoD,” will cover:

• An introduction to the R-GNS programme, its focus and ambition
• Delivery of satellite receivers for R-GNS: commercial collaboration and embedded resilience and anti-interference features
• Operating in a multi-constellation, multi-service satellite navigation sector – enabling accurate and safe navigation
• SwAP considerations for ground segment receivers and terminals
• Future priorities for UK MoD – where additional partnership will be possible

Military PNT 2020 will bring together military and industry to discuss how satellite navigation technology is supporting the terrestrial forces, covering topics such as PNT resilience, the future of US PNT, the UK’s post-Galileo PNT environment, warfighter navigation requirements and much more.

With 4 hours of networking and an extensive exhibition space, this conference will provide an excellent opportunity to meet and engage with key players in the PNT domain.
