Dana Deasy, chief information officer at the Department of Defense, said DoD is working to demonstrate 5G connectivity across a number of military bases, FCW reported Friday.

The department is forming a list of bases that would serve as test beds for a 5G rollout, according to Deasy. DoD also intends to have bases sustain and implement the 5G technology after testing, the CIO noted at a Defense Writers Group breakfast in Washington, D.C.

He also stated that the department intends to keep supply chain activities within the country to maintain an edge against foreign competitors.

“As a nation we do need to step up and look very strongly at how we create more domestic capability,” he said.
