The United States and countries around the world are facing a critical situation: the Global Positioning System (GPS) and other Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are susceptible to vulnerabilities and threats. Unforeseen outages or intentional attacks can have a devastating impact on the operations of critical infrastructure assets that rely on a steady stream of precise timing or location information.
Our future can be made more safe and secure by protecting national critical infrastructure with assured positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT). Satellite Time and Location (STL) from Satelles is an alternative PNT technology that complements and safeguards GPS/GNSS with high levels of performance quality and operational resilience.

The World Relies on the Global Positioning System (GPS)
For the last three decades, GPS has become integral to the operations of almost every commercial sector. In fact, GPS is essentially a global utility, one that provides precise positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) information anywhere in the world.Read More
