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.

Due to the corona virus pandemic, our 2020 annual PNT symposium was a virtual event—a webinar in which all presenters and participants were connected and communicated via the Internet using Zoom and YouTube Livestreaming technologies.

The webinar symposium was held over two half days: Tuesday morning, October 27, and Wednesday morning, October 28. Each webinar morning featured six interesting and informative invited presentations.
