DOD kicks off procurement for 5G prototypes

The Pentagon wants to launch a series of 5G testbeds at military bases across the U.S., and it issued a draft call for proposals for the first two bases. It asked for interested members of the National Spectrum Consortium to submit feedback on plans to deliver smart warehouse and asset management technology at Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, Georgia, and 5G dynamic spectrum sharing at Hill Air Force Base in Utah. The solicitation describes the consortium’s role as a sort of administrator between DOD and private member organizations.
