Alan Cameron, publisher and editor, and Don Jewell, contributing editor for defense, will be blogging live from the 2012 JSDE/ION Joint Navigation Conference. The conference will be held June 12-15 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Cameron and Jewell will be blogging twice a day with all the news from the defense-oriented conference.

Among many other matters, we’ll be taking a close-up look at NovAtel’s and L-3’s new SAASM receiver. This is a classified piee of hardware, of course, but we should be able to glean some details on this and other new defense products and services being rolled out at the exhibit accompanying the conference.

In addition, we’ll have a top-level view of the Warfighters’ Panel on June 15. A similar session was the undisputed highlight of the GPS Partnership Council in late April, and we expect more of the same here. GPS World columnist Don Jewell is organizing this panel.

According to organizers, JNC 2012 will be the largest U.S. military navigation conference of the year with joint service and government participation. The event will focus on technical advances in positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) with emphasis on joint development, test and support of affordable PNT systems, logistics, and integration. From an operational perspective, the conference will also focus on advances in battlefield applications of GPS, critical strengths or weaknesses of fielded navigation devices, warfighter PNT requirements and solutions, and navigation warfare.
