ATIS Webinar: Timing Security – Mitigating Threats in a Changing Landscape Focuses on GPS Vulnerabilities and How to Mitigate their Impact in Timing Systems

Join us Tuesday, May 22, 2018 at 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. ET

The GPS system’s vulnerability to jamming, spoofing and system problems poses a huge threat to the timing systems that are a critical part of our communications networks. Although highly reliable, GPS’ dependability is also a drawback: many companies do not have back-ups for when the system goes down. This makes any form of failure potentially catastrophic. However, these threats can be mitigated.  Learn how in the ATIS webinar, Timing Security: Mitigating Threats in a Changing Landscape. The webinar features experts who will also be speaking at the Workshop on Synchronization and Timing Systems (WSTS)  to provide in-depth coverage of these topics.  WSTS is North America’s Premier Timing and Sync event and takes place June 18-21 in San Jose, CA.

Webinar Panelists:

Kevin Coggins
Vice President for Positioning, Navigation, and Timing
Booz Allen Hamilton


Barry Dropping
Senior Director
Production Line Management


James Platt
