Military researchers approach industry for 5G technologies for future deployable simulation and training
Goal is to show how 5G can support realistic distributed training and develop deployable equipment for military simulation and mission rehearsal.
PICATINNY ARSENAL, N.J. – U.S. military researchers are asking for industry’s help in developing enabling technologies in 5G communications to support realistic and deployable distributed simulation and training systems.
Officials of the U.S. Army Contracting Command at Picatinny Arsenal, N.J., issued a notice this week (W15QKN-20-Z-1AP2) for an upcoming request for prototypes for the 5G Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality Prototypes project.
The actual request for prototypes announcements is being handled through the National Spectrum Consortium in Summerville, S.C. Companies must be members of the consortium to participate in this project.
This initiative seeks to demonstrate how 5G communications technologies can support realistic distributed training and develop deployable equipment and systems to integrate these technologies into training operations.
