Positioning, Navigation, and Timing

Current activities for Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) involve:

  • Specializing in Software Defined Transmitter (e.g. On-orbit Reconfigurable Waveform Generator [ORDWG]) and Software Define Receiver embedded systems and software
  • Developing software to measure signal quality of ORDWGs
  • Developing SDR technology to receive and measure the effectiveness of advanced signals
  • Drone countermeasures
  • Developing, training, testing, and deploying Machine Learning Algorithms for threat detection, prediction, and mitigation
  • Developing a distributable machine learning toolset with a diverse set of model deployment options (FPGA, GPU, ARM, TPU, VPU, etc)
  • Creating a standard database of GNSS signals to serve as a benchmark for future machine learning development

Supporting the AFRL SatNav Technology area (SatNavTA) Program and the Joint Navigation Warfare Center (JNWC)
