Kevin Coggins, program manager for positioning, navigation and timing at the U.S. Army, has said that work is currently underway on the Army PNT System of Systems Architecture in an interview with C4ISR & Networks posted Monday.

Rutrell Yasin writes the Army PNT SoSA is an open-systems architecture-based framework designed to incorporate additional PNT technologies without the need for costly certification and platform integration.

Coggins told the publication that competitive prototypes for the Pseudolite subprogram of the Assured PNT initiative are now being developed after the subprogram entered the Technology Maturation and Risk Reduction stage in May.

Pseudolite aims to develop pseudo-satellites that work to provide GPS-like signals in signal-deprived environments, according to the report.
