Pentagon Seeks Pitches for 5G-Enabled Virtual Reality Projects

The Defense Department | March 18, 2020

The Defense Department recently revealed it’s working with the National Spectrum Consortium through an other transaction agreement to strategically test and pioneer applications of fifth-generation wireless technology at four domestic military bases. The agency outlined its aims in December to publish four separate requests for prototype proposals that solely the consortium’s more than 300 members would be eligible to respond to. Each RPP would encompass different military installations that NSC members could support to help Defense officials experiment with emerging 5G use cases. Since then, and over the last couple weeks, the agency rolled out three of the four requests—and the most recent launched Monday. Upon that release, a consortium spokesperson offered Nextgov a brief update on the requests published so far, a glimpse into what’s to come and details around the ultimate aims of the effort.
