Registration is now closed

Join your fellow NSTXL innovators for this 30-minute event, introduce your organization and its capabilities, and learn what others are doing in support of this opportunity.

This virtual teaming program facilitates discussions about how participants can contribute to a team through member capabilities. Participants are encouraged to continue the conversation after the event by joining the opportunity teaming board on NSTXL Community.


OPPORTUNITY OVERVIEW

The Department of the Navy (DoN) is seeking Fifth Generation (5G) prototype testbed network and associated prototype 5G technology to accomplish the integration of Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) applications to support continuous experimental evaluations related to Command Post Survivability and Mobility for US Army.

The Department of Defense (DoD) must be prepared to conduct Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) as part of a joint force (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Space Force) and counter and defeat a near-peer adversary capable of contesting the United States in all domains (air, land, maritime, space, and cyberspace) during peacetime and armed conflict. MDO provides the Armed Forces numerous options for executing simultaneous and sequential operations using surprise and the rapid and continuous integration of capabilities across all domains. MDO presents multiple dilemmas to an adversary in order to gain physical and psychological advantages and influence and control over the operational environment. Tactically, under MDO, it will be even more critical for the Armed Forces to shoot, move, and communicate effectively in an increasingly contested, access denied world of near-peer adversaries without the additional burden of complexity of systems.

The DoD seeks a 5G prototype testbed network and associated prototype 5G technology to accomplish the integration of GFE applications to support continuous experimental evaluations related to Command Post Survivability and Mobility for US Army. The desired prototype is a flexible, reconfigurable, and rapidly deployable private 5G network that supports experimentation with 5G Use Case applications in varied mission scenarios. Prototype testbed is needed to meet requirements for Command Post survivability and to integrate various GFE technologies for mobility.

The Command Post Survivability and Vehicular Mobility at NTC Other Transaction Authority (OTA) prototype project is anticipated to be released and to be executed in three (3) 12-month phases for a total of thirty six (36) month period of performance.
