Spectrum-sharing consortium helping U.S. military chart waters in 5G
A consortium of companies brought together more than four years ago to assist the Defense Department in managing electromagnetic spectrum access is now working to help DOD experiment with next-generation 5G technologies.
In May, the National Spectrum Consortium put out a call for "technical concepts related to 5G" on behalf of DOD. The concepts will help the Pentagon conduct market research for "rapidly innovating with 5G technologies," according to a notice posted to the Federal Business Opportunities website.
