AFCEA Washington, DC June Luncheon

Harnessing 5G for Military Operations

Fifth generation mobile networks, or 5G, promise low latency, high speeds and more reliable connectivity, presenting new possibilities for both the commercial sector and the military. Organizations, though, are looking to harness more than just faster broadband speeds from this next-gen technology. 5G can open doors to new capabilities in the areas of virtual reality, the Internet of Things, telemedicine and distance learning.  In fact, the Department of Defense has unveiled several 5G testbeds that have the potential to revolutionize how the government shares radio spectrum and trains service members. The DoD envisions three uses cases that will augment future military capabilities, including dynamic spectrum sharing to demonstrate the capability of 5G in congested environments, integration of augmented reality and virtual reality into mission planning and training, and smart warehouses to explore how 5G can simplify modern military logistics. Additionally, 5G will improve intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems and processing. Yet, leveraging 5G networks with software-centric and virtualized technologies for greater performance, can open these networks to more cybersecurity attacks and vulnerabilities.  Join AFCEA DC June 10, at the Army Navy County Club, Arlington, VA. to hear government experts discuss the benefits, challenges and implications of deploying 5G networks to support military operations.

AFCEA Washington, DC continues to monitor and assess new developments pertaining to the Novel Coronavirus originating in China. The health and safety of our attendees is our top priority.

We strongly encourage attendees and exhibitors to follow the guidance of the CDC for everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when sick.
  • Cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
