Securing Positioning & Timing

organised by

The Royal Institute of Navigation

in Edinburgh, UK

Course Purpose

To build understanding of how to Protect, Toughen & Augment your system or application.

Protect: identify, locate, and classify threats;

Toughen: add resilience to the antenna or receiver;

Augment: fuse GNSS with alternative sensors.

Who is it for?

This course will include technical content but is pitched to be accessible to a wide audience that includes integrators, application teams and informed users.

  • Those wanting to improve knowledge and skills in relation to assured positioning and timing
  • Critical infrastructure providers with some reliance on satellite-derived time or position
  • Autonomous vehicle / drone users and system designers who want to understand global navigation satellite system (GNSS) vulnerabilities steps to improve performance
  • Those wanting to know what practical steps can be taken towards a more secure positioning and timing system
  • System and application designers and users wanting practical information to understand best practices for positioning and timing resilience
