The military’s 5G initiatives were outlined by Sal D’Itri and Kurt Jacobs. D’Itri is the past chairman and a current member of the National Spectrum Consortium and is also VP and GM at Federated Wireless.
Shared Spectrum is working on the National Spectrum Consortium project ( NSC-20-2084 ), part of the DoD’s awards for 5G experimentation and testing. The goal of this project is to develop technologies for 5G-enabled dynamic spectrum sharing, which will provide more available spectrum for new system users, with minimal impact on legacy wireless systems.
DOD is also working with the National Spectrum Consortium, which has more than 400 member companies and academic institutions, to encourage industry participation in efforts to provide military and commercial access to electromagnetic spectrum for 5G-based technologies.
In celebration of National Spectrum Consortium’s anniversary this month, we are looking back at its achievements and collaborative efforts over the past seven years.
In June, the Department of Defense issued a request for prototype proposal to members of the National Spectrum Consortium for research and training related to 5G telemedicine and medical training.
The National Spectrum Consortium recently teamed up with the Progressive Policy Institute (PPI) to research the impact of the 5G revolution to create millions of jobs over the next 15 years. The research paper reviewed three time periods of wireless-driven job growth in the U.S., and reviews job creation, industries affected, and job location.
The National Spectrum Consortium funded by the Defense Department is devoted to R&D related to the emerging 5G and related Internet of Things technologies. Now it has a new executive director with Capitol Hill, Pentagon and industry experience.
Cole Engineering Services, Inc. a By Light Company, has been awarded a $31.3M contract by the National Spectrum Consortium for the Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality 5G Network Enhancements Prototype Other Transaction Agreement.
DOD issues RPP through the National Spectrum Consortium (NSC) to leverage 5G and Augmented Reality to save warfighters’ lives
To provide the best possible solutions to the DoD, the NSC has invited members of the Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC) to review the RPPs and possibly team with proposers from the NSC.
The Department of Defense wants to see a prototype that can ensure spectrum is available whenever it’s needed for aerial combat training, according to an April 26 request from the National Spectrum Consortium.
