    GPS/PNT is essential for information technology systems in many ways:

    • Time stamps for Distributed (Cloud) Data
    • Computing in Distributed Systems
    • Defining order across a system without communication
    • Defining boundary conditions for algorithms
    • Location data to support services
    • Orientation/compass in applications
    • Geoencryption / Geofencing
    • Proof of time and location as part of identity

    The problem is that GPS signals are very weak and easy to disrupt. They have been disrupted by solar flares, malfunctioning electrical and electronic equipment, and poorly mounted TV antennas. Small illegal GPS jammers have become popular with privacy seekers and criminals, and U.S. adversaries are known to employ larger jammers that can deny GPS over very large areas.

    The RNT Foundation is working to safeguard GPS services by advocating policies and systems to Protect, Toughen and Augment them.

    Here are a few of the many resources we have available on this topic:
