Other Initiatives

Satelles is involved with these civil government PNT projects:

U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT)

Satelles was one of eleven alternative PNT providers selected by DOT to participate in a GPS Backup/Complementary PNT Demonstration. The demo was conducted in March 2020, and a report detailing the results is expected to be issued to the U.S. Congress by the end of 2020.

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

In support of the development of PNT profiles — a key directive of Executive Order 13905 — NIST issued a Request for Information about Profile of Responsible Use of Positioning, Navigation, and Timing Services. Three dozen companies, entities, or individuals responded to the RFI in July 2020, including Satelles. NIST will use the information and insight gained from the RFI responses to help draft a foundational PNT profile for critical infrastructure owners and operators. They will submit the draft for public comments later in 2020 and then prepare a final version to meet the February 2021 due date specified by the executive order.
