Since the advent of GPS in the early 1970's, there's been a virtual revolution in PNT technology and applications. Today, PNT services are used by over 3 billion users—half the world's population!

Starting with the adaptation of GPS technology for precision spacecraft attitude and guidance control in the 1990s, Stanford has been widely considered the world’s leading academic institution performing PNT, GPS and GNSS research.

In 2006, the SCPNT was created to bring industry affiliate support for pioneering PNT research projects and to facilitate an international forum (by way of the annual SCPNT Symposium) for exchanging ideas, addressing issues and promoting the advancement of PNT technologies and applications.
