The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) published a meeting notice in today’s Federal Register (78 FR 65006) for a meeting of the National Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) Advisory Board on December 4th and 5th in Washington, DC. The meeting is open to the public.
The agenda includes:
• Update on PNT Policy and GPS modernization;
• Opportunities for interoperability of current GPS with emerging international Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS);
• Trends and requirements for PNT services;
• Current and future GPS services and PNT capabilities; and
• Consider the effects of potential PNT service degradation if adjacent radio-band spectrum interference is introduced.
While the meeting is open to the public the notice does not say anything about public participation or about the submission of oral or written comments.
NOTE: The GPS timing services are used for the synchronization of many SCADA systems, so this often ignored service is of serious interest to many in the ICS community.
