Representatives from all three services will address their plans to respond to urgent PNT requirements from the field in a rapid manner. Panelists will present current plans to quickly allocate requirements to an open system architecture (OSA), cooperate with industry to demonstrate prototypes, where OSA promotes the ability to plug and play new sensors with flexible interfaces from a diverse set of providers, adaptive software development to support the fusion of PNT sensor information, iterative prototyping in a cooperative manner with industry conducting demonstrations/test in government laboratories, and move forward to conduct operational tests to ensure all requirements have been satisfied. Using this methodology manufacturing can begin in a very quick turnaround in comparison to current DoD acquisition.

Panel Members:

1. Mr. Chris Garrett, Senior Leader (SL) for System Engineering, USAF

2. CAPT Andrew Gibbons, Program Manager, Communications and GPS Navigation Program Office, USN

3. COL Nick Kioutas, Program Manager for Positioning, Navigation and Timing, US Army
