Assured PNT sync planning for smart digital grids

The risks associated with GNSS vulnerabilities and cyber threats to positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) services are growing, with the economic cost of a GPS outage in the US currently estimated to be 1 billion USD per day. For power utilities, a major rethink in network planning architecture is now urgently needed, especially time synchronization and PNT service assurance.


Based on guidelines from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), we’ve developed an intelligent aPNT platform. This leading-edge, assured PNT grandmaster clock architecture delivers resilience, robustness and security by providing multi-layer detection, multi-source backup and multi-level fault-tolerant mitigation.
