The Department of Defense is asking industry for ideas to develop 5G technology platforms for demonstration at Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany in Georgia and Hill Air Force Base in Utah.
DoD said Monday it will collect input through Dec. 16 to help the department finalize prototype solicitations related to the experimentation and testing of the next-generation wireless technology.
The project at MCLB Albany aims to demonstrate the potential of 5G-enabled systems to support U.S. Marine Corps’ warehouse and logistics operations, according to a notice posted Friday on beta.SAM.gov.
Hill AFB’s project goal is to evaluate whether a 5G mobile cellular network and airborne radar systems work in shared spectrum with frequencies between 3,100 and 3,450 megahertz.
The department intends to issue final requests for prototype proposals through the National Spectrum Consortium as part of a five-year other transaction agreement.
