EU Report Stresses Importance of GNSS Alternatives for PNT
The European Union’s Joint Research Centre released a new report highlighting its 2021-2022 tests of Alternative Position, Navigation and Timing (A-PNT) technologies.

Tests by the U.S. Department of Transportation also found TerraPoiNT to be the only commercial PNT alternative to meet identified requirements, the company said.
