The Virtual Primary Reference Time Clock: A Next-Generation Timing Architecture for Critical Infrastructures

Hosted by GPS World

Accuracy, precision and stability have traditionally been used to describe the requirements for timing and synchronization. Although these timing metrics remain vital, a new set of requirements have become equally important with the goal of delivering better resiliency in critical infrastructure: prevention, restoration and recovery. A variety of technologies are being discussed to create a back-up to GNSS. The answer to greater resiliency does not lie in the number of timing sources, but rather in a timing architecture that incorporates these technologies. This presentation discusses how a Virtual Primary Reference Timing Clock (vPRTC) architecture is optimized for resilient timing.

The Need for Resilient PNT Services to Ensure Safe and Secure Transportation Infrastructure

Hosted by GPS World

Over the past two decades, transportation-critical infrastructure sectors have widely adopted the use of GNSS-derived position, navigation and timing (PNT) to support their safety-critical operations. GNSS PNT’s extreme position and timing accuracy enables significant capacity and efficiency improvements, and this accuracy has been a primary driver for this evolution. However, the availability, integrity and continuity of PNT services are essential to maintain the safety and security of these systems and its users. GNSS disruption or manipulation, via intentional or unintentional jamming or spoofing, can directly impact transportation operations and potentially jeopardize public safety as well. This webinar will explore how GNSS is used by the transportation industry and discuss emerging strategies to build in monitoring, security and resiliency to provide an assured PNT framework for transportation use.
