Complementary Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT)


This is a multiple award solicitation. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is planning a test, evaluation, and performance monitoring effort for positioning, navigation, and/or timing (PNT)‐dependent safety systems and critical infrastructure sectors. Taken together with efforts of other Federal partners through the executive branch interagency process, this initiative will enhance the resilience of the Nation’s PNT‐dependent systems by stimulating the implementation and adoption of technologically mature Complementary PNT (CPNT) services to achieve safer, more secure critical infrastructure for the Nation.
