From October to November 2020, the UK Space Agency engaged industry and academia specialising in Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) via a Request for Information (RFI), designed to ensure a wide range of space-based concepts can be explored by the Space Based PNT Programme (SBPP).

SBPP’s analysis is ongoing and will assess how well different options meet the UK’s requirements for PNT information from space.
