MCAS Miramar: A 5G Collaborative Market for Developing the "Installation Next"

In conjunction with the USMC, Verizon and Naval Information Warfare Center - Pacific have finalized a 4 year Collaborative Research and Development Agreement to establish a 5G Living Lab on MCAS Miramar. This will be a key foundation in the Protection, Resilience and Mobility Vectors of the Marine Corps' Installation Next efforts. To help support this, Congress recently approved $5M for establishing and evaluating the capabilities that will be enabled by 5G on MCAS Miramar, such as Unmanned Vehicles, Drones, Micro-Grid capabilities, and Digtal Fortress pilots.
