The U.S. Division of Protection (DOD) has awarded Lockheed Martin a $19.3 million Prototype Mission Settlement (PPA) to create a 5G communications community infrastructure testbed for expeditionary operations experimentation for the Workplace of the Underneath Secretary of Protection for Analysis and Engineering (OUSD R&E) and the U.S. Marine Corps. The testbed, referred to as Open Methods Interoperable and Reconfigurable Infrastructure Resolution (OSIRIS), is a key initiative of Lockheed Martin’s 5G.MIL® applications that are positioned to assist its prospects area, scale and combine 5G expertise quickly and affordably throughout all operations on land, water, in air, house and cyber.

The OSIRIS program will assist handle the necessity for take a look at services that allow speedy experimentation and dual-use utility prototyping. The testbed will establish areas for additional compatibility between 5G community and DOD platforms that may improve buyer capabilities. The infrastructure may even enable for the connection of varied 5G-ready person gadgets, sensors, autos and endpoints to discover the navy utility of economic 5G applied sciences and pave the way in which for onboarding of recent applied sciences from different OUSD investments whereas addressing cybersecurity necessities. This functionality will additional allow and advance DOD’s Joint All Area Operations idea.


“OSIRIS will function a important proof level of Lockheed Martin’s 5G.MIL® capabilities,” says Deon Viergutz, vice chairman, Lockheed Martin Spectrum Convergence. “We’re integrating the technical capabilities of 5G waveforms, software program and {hardware} with increased bandwidth and low-latency information charges into our protection merchandise to boost their efficiency for our warfighters. We need to be certain that warfighters working in communications contested and denied environments have resilient entry to information to carry out their missions wherever on this planet.”

Groups from Lockheed Martin, together with subcontractors DISH Wi-fi, Intel Company, Radisys Company and Rampart Communications, Inc., will create the 5G community testbed infrastructure at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. The interval of efficiency will start instantly and conclude in September 2024. Lockheed Martin’s latest agreements with Radisys, Verizon and Keysight Applied sciences are vital enablers in furthering the DOD’s new warfighting ideas. Via collaboration with industrial corporations and leveraging its business expertise, Lockheed Martin’s 5G.MIL applications help the chairman, president and CEO Jim Taiclet’s imaginative and prescient to attain community results by bridging industrial applied sciences into future DOD capabilities that allow JADO and Joint All Area Command and Management to fulfill our buyer’s and associate’s wants throughout all operational domains. Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin Company is a world safety and aerospace firm that employs roughly 114,000 folks worldwide and is principally engaged within the analysis, design, growth, manufacture, integration and sustainment of superior expertise techniques, services and products.
