NextNav showcases APNT backup

May 2022 | No Comment

NextNav has announced that it has recently participated in the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) alternative positioning, navigation, and timing (APNT) evaluation in Ispra, Italy. According to the JRC, the trial is analyzing the technologies “which could deliver positioning, and/or timing information, independently from GNSS, to be effective backup in the event of GNSS disruption, and if possible to be able to provide PNT in the environments where GNSS cannot be delivered.” The test furthers the European Union’s creation of a backup to the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), such as Galileo or GPS, and is intended to assess which technologies could strengthen and expand the European PNT capacity.
