据c4isrnet网2020年6月4日报道,6月3日,美国防部宣布,7个新的基地将作为5G技术试验靶场。

继国防部去年10月宣布启动首批基地以来,这是第二批,使国防部第五代网络能力试验基地增加到12个。

国防部5G技术主管约瑟夫•埃文斯称,将于下周发布第二批需求建议书,旨在使工业界“到秋天末”在第二批试验平台工作。

新基地及相关5G项目如下:

  • 弗吉尼亚州诺福克海军基地:全舰与码头连接;
  • 夏威夷珍珠港-希克姆联合基地: 提高飞机作战任务准备;
  • 德克萨斯州圣安东尼奥联合基地:增强维修与培训现实支持,以及5G核心安全实验网,包括多个远程站点;
  • 加利福尼亚州欧文堡国家训练中心: 前沿作战基地与战术作战中心的无线链接;
  • 德克萨斯州胡德堡基地:前沿作战基地与战术作战中心的无线链接;
  • 加利福尼亚州彭德尔顿营:前沿作战基地与战术作战中心的无线链接;
  • 俄克拉荷马州廷克空军基地: 国防部和商业企业之间的双向频谱共享。

埃文斯称,基地将提高作为“促进快速实验和两用型样机开发的大型试验设施”的能力,遴选标准包括与频谱带“一体化”链接、成熟的光纤和无线基础设施,以及样机开发和试验区全域链接。

华盛顿刘易斯-麦克霍德联合基地、犹他州希尔空军基地、加利福尼亚州圣迭戈海军基地及乔治亚州奥尔巴尼海军陆战队后勤基地,被列为5G技术主机测试与实验的首批美军基地。今年5月,内华达州内利斯空军基地被增选。

Pentagon names seven new bases for 5G test beds

The Department of Defense announced seven new bases June 3 that will serve as testing grounds for 5G technology.

The second group of bases, known as tranche two, brings the total number of bases testing fifth-generation network capabilities to 12 after the department announced the first tranche of bases in October last year.

.Joseph Evans, the Pentagon’s technical director for 5G, said the DoD will release requests for proposals for the new tranche “in the coming weeks.” Evans added that the goal is to have industry working at the tranche two test beds “by the end of fall.”

Here are the new bases and their corresponding 5G projects:

  • Naval Base Norfolk, Virginia: Ship-wide and pier connectivity.
  • Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii: Enhancing aircraft mission readiness.
  • Joint Base San Antonio, Texas: Augmented reality support of maintenance and training, and a 5G core security experimentation network, including multiple remote locations.
  • The National Training Center at Fort Irwin, California: Wireless connectivity for forward-operating bases and tactical operations centers.
  • Fort Hood, Texas: Wireless connectivity for forward-operating bases and tactical operations centers.
  • Camp Pendleton, California: Wireless connectivity for forward-operating bases and tactical operations centers.
  • Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma: Bidirectional spectrum sharing between the DoD and the commercial industry.

Evans said the bases were selected for the ability to serve as “large-scale test facilities to enable rapid experimentation as well as dual-use application prototyping.” Criteria for selection included “streamlined” access to spectrum bands, mature fiber and wireless infrastructure, and prototyping and test area range access, Evans told reporters.

Spectrum-sharing work in tranche two will be different than tranche one’s spectrum projects. Tranche one work on spectrum sharing focused on using 5G and high-powered radar in congested environments. Through tranche two’s planned work at Tinker Air Force Base, the DoD will focus on sharing between its communications systems and 5G sharing systems.

“Because of the overall spectrum crunch, we think that it has benefits in peacetime as well as in times of national emergency when … DoD can then make more effective use of spectrum that may not be otherwise in use at that time,” Evans said.

Lt. Gen. Bruce Crawford, the Army’s chief information officer, welcomed the selection of two new Army bases.

“Leveraging 5G technologies will also be a critical enabler to the Army’s Multi-Domain Operations and Joint All-Domain Command and Control convergence efforts, which require near-real-time network access for any sensor and shooter, any [command-and-control] node,” Crawford said. “Establishing 5G wireless network-experimentation sites across the Army allows for a greater understanding of the technology and how to best utilize it across the force.”

The DoD is now in the source-selection process for the tranche one bases and aims to make awards “later this summer,” according to Evans. Tranche one bases are Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington; Hill Air Force Base, Utah; Naval Base San Diego, California; and Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, Georgia, as the first U.S. military installations to host testing and experimentation for 5G technology. Last month, Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada was added.
