SecureTime Services

Operating independently of traditional GPS and GNSS, the altGNSS GEO service boasts a high resistance to jamming and spoofing, providing the broadest global coverage, Viavi said on Thursday. SecureTime includes Navigation Message Authentication (NMA), using encryption to detect spoofing in signals from all sources, including GPS.

Field Testing and Proven Performance

Viavi says its SecureTime services have been tested and proven effective in live-sky battlefield scenarios, successfully providing assured PNT in environments with complete denial of GPS and GNSS services. The company plans to integrate these services into its products and offer receivers for third-party systems.

The SecurePNT 6200 hardware platform, powered by Viavi's SecureTime Services and TrustedPNT multisource fusion technology, will support these new capabilities.
