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 MondayÂ itÂ will collectÂ input through Dec. 16 to helpÂ the department finalizeÂ prototype solicitations related to the experimentation and testing of the next-generationÂ wireless technology.
The project atÂ MCLB Albany aimsÂ toÂ demonstrate the potential ofÂ 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 toÂ evaluate whetherÂ a 5G mobile cellular networkÂ and airborne radar systems work in shared spectrum with frequencies betweenÂ 3,100 and 3,450 megahertz.
The department intends to issue final requests for prototype proposalsÂ through theÂ National Spectrum Consortium as part of a five-yearÂ other transaction agreement.
