NextNav’s Strategic Move in the Spectrum Solution Space

NextNav’s strategic move to file a petition with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for rulemaking marks a significant step towards revolutionizing the spectrum solution in the Lower 900 MHz band. By proposing a reconfiguration to support both a terrestrial positioning, navigation, timing (PNT) network and broadband services, NextNav is setting the stage for a major enhancement in the way essential PNT services are delivered. This initiative is not just about improving the existing Global Positioning System (GPS); it’s about creating a high-quality terrestrial complement and backup that addresses the current vulnerabilities of the U.S. GPS system, such as susceptibility to jamming, spoofing, and other targeting events.

The acquisition of additional spectrum licenses from Telesaurus Holdings GB LLC and Skybridge Spectrum Foundation, as approved by the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Alameda, significantly bolsters NextNav’s position in the Lower 900 MHz Band. This move not only enhances the company’s PNT expertise and product offerings but also solidifies its role as a key player in the development of next-generation PNT and broadband services. With these additional 4 MHz in the lower 900 MHz band, NextNav is well-equipped to execute its vision of providing a robust terrestrial PNT network that serves as a reliable backup to the GPS, thereby ensuring the continuity of essential services even in the face of challenges that may disrupt GPS functionality.

NextNav CEO Mariam Sorond’s emphasis on the initiative’s potential to prioritize national security, public safety, and facilitate the freeing up of spectrum for 5G technology underscores the broader implications of NextNav’s proposal. By offering 15 megahertz of low-band spectrum for mobile broadband networks, NextNav is not only looking to enhance PNT services but also to contribute to the advancement of 5G technology. This approach aligns with the company’s goal of fostering innovation in telecommunications while addressing critical needs in national security and public safety.

The company’s plan to partner with mobile network operators or other entities for the commercial deployment of 5G in the band further highlights NextNav’s commitment to leveraging its NextGen PNT technology and network to support the rollout of 5G services. This collaboration is expected to yield a 3D positioning solution with single-digit accuracy, available both indoors and outdoors, including in challenging urban environments. Such a solution would not only enhance the precision and reliability of PNT services but also support the wireless distribution of precise, resilient timing, which is crucial for a wide range of applications, from telecommunications to emergency response.

In summary, NextNav’s petition to the FCC represents a forward-thinking approach to addressing the limitations of the current GPS system and paving the way for the integration of advanced PNT and broadband services. By acquiring additional spectrum licenses and proposing a reconfiguration of the Lower 900 MHz band, NextNav is poised to make significant contributions to national security, public safety, and the advancement of 5G technology, benefiting Americans and the U.S. economy at large.
