The Open PNT Industry Alliance — a coalition of manufacturers and service providers dedicated to helping their customers complement and augment GPS/GNSS by delivering alternative forms of positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) — recently welcomed Xairos Systems as its newest member.

OPIA advocates to ensure that critical infrastructure owners and operators have the freedom to adopt commercially available alternative PNT solutions that best meet their operational needs at the earliest opportunity. The coalition is committed to making certain that national government requirements for GPS/GNSS backup are sufficiently broad to include a range of technological solutions and to securing national government commitments to policies and funding for long-term sustainability of diverse PNT solutions.

Private or public corporations with business interests in the assured PNT market (i.e., hardware manufacturers and service providers that develop and utilize various technological architectures to provide positioning, navigation, and timing) or national critical infrastructure are eligible to apply for membership (learn more).
