DOT/RITA and OASD(NII), in coordination with other government agencies, have recently completed the development of a National Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) Architecture. The Architecture establishes the vision of U.S. global leadership in PNT, a strategy to achieve the vision, major vectors within the strategy, and recommendations to implement the vectors. The Industry Day presents an opportunity for vendors to become familiar with the PNT Architecture, to understand how it incorporates industry perspectives, to make company perspectives known to the government, and to engage in discussion with the government regarding its plans to transition to the Architecture.
