5G is a global megatrend with major implications for military overmatch and economic strength. A whole-of-government effort has been put into motion to ensure that policy, strategy, R&D, and spectrum access are accelerated to ensure successful adoption both commercially and militarily.

The OUSD R&E 5G-to-NextG program has made it possible to develop full-scale prototypes on operational bases to allow for in-depth experimentation with 5G technologies in a wide variety of environments and use cases. Mr. Aaron Weis (DON CIO) is the 5G Champion for the DON and is leading a DON-wide effort to ensure that the OUSD R&E experiments are successful and inform a robust 5G strategy for scalable adoption in the DON.
