Today, virtually all critical infrastructure systems rely on GNSS- Global Navigation Satellite Systems, either directly or peripherally. In this Tech Talk, Mr Edmondson will discuss Resilient PNT- positioning, navigation, and timing in Critical Infrastructure.

Advances in technology, information availability, and logistics, combined with world events, have created a perfect storm for low-cost and low-effort attacks on GNSS subsystems, creating cascadable reductions in, and interruptions to, critical infrastructure services. This brief presentation will introduce Executive Order 13905, attack methods, and mitigation options.
