Russia and China continue to improve both their ability to deny space-based PNT to others while minimizing the impacts of such denial in their homelands. Over the last decade this has progressed to the point where the west is at a significant disadvantage in all levels of warfare - tactical, operational, strategic, and political.
The west's PNT vulnerabilities are such that it's economic, military, and political, power could greatly suffer relative to adversaries, even in the absence of a hostile act.
This paper calls to greatly accelerate nascent government efforts to eliminate these gaps in capability and relative vulnerability.
