PNT Threat Environments

Warfighters are fighting in a more contested and congested environment than ever and are combatting increasingly sophisticated adversaries every day. This resource rethinks Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) and its role in “A Day without Space” scenario.

Four Generations of ALE

This paper digs into Automatic Link Establishment (ALE) protocols, which are employed in the field to make HF Radio Frequency (RF) connectivity as simple as dialing a phone number and offers a basic understanding of the physics involved in HF communication.
