In concert with the guidance promulgated by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense Research and Engineering (ASD - R&E) and National Information Infrastructure (ASD - NII), concerning Navigation Warfare (NAVWAR), which deals with the mitigation of denial of Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT), this effort is concerned with the first two of the three elements: Electronic Protection (EP) and Electronic Support (ES). Please note that this effort does not address Electronic Attack (EA). Precision navigation and timekeeping are essential for many modern naval and maritime systems, and it is essential that navigation and timekeeping services be made available to platforms and weapons at the highest level of accuracy and with the highest possible confidence at reasonable cost. Lack of precise navigation and timekeeping technologies may jeopardize the success of military operations. For example, the Global Positioning System (GPS) provides highly accurate position/time information at low cost and, due to this, GPS has become the technology of choice for many users. Unfortunately, the GPS signal is a low-power signal that is susceptible to interference. Therefore, there is a need for (1) affordable approaches to make GPS more reliable/robust, and (2) methods of quantifying threats to GPS performance that may be termed "situational awareness" and (3) affordable and reliable precision navigation/timing alternatives to GPS.

The ONR Navigation and Timekeeping Technology Program seeks new and innovative navigation technologies that will provide more accurate, reliable, maintainable, and affordable systems for Naval air, surface, subsurface, and ground platforms and forces.
