Title: Systems and methods for augmenting a satellite based navigation system with alternative position and timing data

Abstract

Various technologies pertaining to integrating a positioning or timing solution from an alternative position, navigation, or timing (PNT) system into a satellite-based-navigation system are described herein. The PNT system generates a position/timing (P/T) solution that indicates a current position or current time of the PNT system. The P/T solution is provided as input to a simulation of a satellite constellation of the satellite-based-navigation system, and a constellation signal is generated based on the simulation and the P/T solution. The constellation signal is formatted according to a navigation signal format of the satellite-based-navigation system such that when the constellation signal is provided to a receiver of the satellite-based-navigation system, the receiver computes a P/T solution that indicates the current position or the current time identified by the PNT system.
