2019 Federal Radionavigation Plan published

The Navigation Center posted a notice on its website announcing the availability of the 2019 Federal Radionavigation Plan (FRP).

The Federal Radionavigation Plan is the official source of positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) policy and planning for the Federal Government. It is required by the 1998 National Defense Authorization Act, as published under Title 10 United States Code, Section 2281, paragraph (c) (10 USC 2281(c)).

The FRP is prepared jointly by the departments of Defense, Homeland Security, and Transportation, with the assistance of other government agencies and published not less than every two years.

This 2019 edition of the FRP reflects the policy and planning for present and future federally provided PNT systems, covering common-use PNT systems (i.e., systems used by both civil and military sectors). 

To download or view the FRP, and other resources, visit Navigation Center’s publications and documents general library.
