MLF - Position Navigation and Timing Resilience

Register here for the fifth Maritime Leaders Forum which will be held  1800 – 2100 on Monday 27 November 2023 at Trinity House. Sarah Kenny will lead a panel reviewing the October 2023 Government framework for Greater Position, Navigation and Timing Resilience to underpin Critical National Infrastructure (CNI).

The framework contains ten measures and recommendations. It includes setting up a dedicated National PNT Office in government, bolstering back up plans in case of failure of regular navigation systems such as Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), and the further scoping of technologies such as precise clocks and new satellite-based systems to ensure continuous location and timing information. This is of particular significance given the security environment in key regions. The effect will be felt  across the Maritime Industry, in services, particularly finance, the freight supply chain and navigation at sea.  

The forum is an opportunity for you to influence policy and share best practice with other leaders, as we work to energise the UK Maritime Sector, while meeting national and international security and Climate Change challenges. Delegates are encouraged to offer their experience, as well as ask questions. We are looking for a wide-ranging discussion, considering how we can maximise the benefits of technology while understanding the risks, including those associated with cyber technology.  At the conclusion of the formal session there will be a networking reception.

As leaders, we face shared challenges, right across the maritime sector. Trinity House and Maritime UK have recognised the need to bring leaders together to discuss their approach to shared challenges, share practicable actions and discuss future priorities for action from both government and industry. This session is designed to help businesses develop their resilience.  

The event will be at Trinity House, doors open at 1800 and the talk and discussion will begin at 1830, to be followed by the networking reception, finishing at 2100. There is no charge for attending.
