Dismounted Assured-Positioning, Navigation and Timing (A-PNT) will provide a single source of A-PNT to support communications, command and control, logistics, targeting and effects. It will replace Defense Advanced Global Positioning System (GPS) Receiver and commercial GPS for the Nett Warrior Ensemble and as a stand-alone capability. It will also optimize power to leverage shared Conformal Wearable Battery when employed with Nett Warrior.
This program supports the A-PNT Cross-Functional Team (CFT), which has been established to support the Army Modernization Priorities.
BENEFIT TO THE SOLDIER
Dismounted A-PNT will provide accurate and trusted PNT information to the Army’s dismounted users under conditions where space-based PNT GPS may be limited or denied.
