Complementary PNT

The House report "directs DOT to develop system requirements for PNT functions that support safety-critical services and to develop standards, test procedures, and monitoring capabilities to ensure that PNT services meet these safety and resilience requirements. The Committee directs DOT to provide its plan to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on how it will develop these requirements and standards and implement the technologies within six months after enactment of this Act. The Committee understands the need to develop complementary PNT user adoption approaches, and therefore directs the Secretary to report its findings and recommendations enabling GPS backup and complementary PNT to the Committee within 180 days of providing the requested implementation plan."

Alternative GPS Constellation

The House subcommittee approved language that "directs the Secretary of the Air Force, in coordination with the Director of the Air Force Research Lab and the Chief of Space Operations, to provide a briefing to the House Committee on Armed Services not later than December 31, 2021, on a detailed funding, development, procurement, and launch plan to deploy an alternate PNT constellation that provides the following capabilities: (1) rapid deployment of PNT satellites to address emerging electronic warfare threats to GPS; (2) regional military signal protection to resist jamming and on-orbit reprogrammability to counter spoofing; and (3) active Electronically Steered Phased Array antenna that can be configured to support simultaneous area of operations broadcasting independent and unique signal configurations."
