DoD doubles down on 5G testbeds

Less than a week after submissions closed in the U.S. Department of Defense’s first round of 5G-related RPPs, the agency announced seven new military sites for a second group of 5G testbeds.

“5G technology is vital to maintaining America’s military and economic advantages. 5G is the fifth-generation of cellular network technology…  DOD’s efforts focus on large-scale experimentation and prototyping of dual-use (military and commercial) 5G technology that will provide high speeds, quicker response times and the ability to handle many more wireless devices than current wireless technology,” stated a press release about the announcement.
