The National Spectrum Consortium is a research and development organization that incubates new technologies to revolutionize the way in which spectrum is utilized, and 5G is playing a big part in that. Through collaboration between industry, academia, and Government agencies, we solve the toughest problems the nation faces to enable implementation of 5G, 5G based technologies, and spectrum access and sharing.

NSC was kick-started through a 5 year, $1.25 Billion, Section 815 Prototype Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) with the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Emerging Capabilities and Prototyping (ODASD, EC&P).  In Dec. 2021, the NSC was awarded the 5 year, $2.5 Billion Spectrum Forward OTA.

Currently recruiting a broad and diverse membership that includes representatives from large businesses, small businesses, “non-traditional” government contractors, academic research institutions and not-for-profit organizations.
