Northrop Grumman, AT&T and Fujitsu Demonstrate New 5G-powered Open Architecture Capabilities to Support Joint Force
18 Janvier 2023 - 03:30PM
Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC), AT&T* and Fujitsu
recently demonstrated 5G-enabled intelligence, surveillance and
reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities in Northrop Grumman’s new 5G lab.
The demonstration integrated radios with Northrop Grumman’s
tactical data links, AT&T’s private 5G network and Fujitsu’s
Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN) to transmit ISR data and video,
proving our strength in connecting the battlespace. This is a
critical step in building the digital battle network to support
“This critical capability will bring together the high speeds,
low latency and cybersecurity protections of private 5G networks
with the flexibility and scalability of commercial 5G
capabilities,” said Ben Davies, vice president and general manager
networked information solutions division, Northrop Grumman.
“Enabling 5G connectivity for our warfighters across domains will
help realize a connected battlespace for the joint force.”
Last spring, Northrop Grumman and AT&T established a joint
research and development agreement to build a digital battle
network powered by AT&T’s commercial 5G network and Northrop
Grumman’s robust portfolio of capabilities that are at the
forefront of military technological advancement to enable the joint
“This demonstration showcased the benefits of commercially
available 5G for the Department of Defense and the open,
standards-based technologies that we’re exploring and developing as
leaders in the O-RAN Alliance,” said Lance Spencer, client
executive vice president, defense, public sector, AT&T.
“Open RAN is accelerating 5G innovations to deliver high-speed,
low-latency requirements for mission-critical applications,” said
Greg Manganello, senior vice president and vice head of the 5G
mobile systems business unit at Fujitsu. “Our collaboration with
Northrop Grumman and AT&T highlights the benefits of the
ecosystem underpinning of Open RAN, enabling new configurations of
mission-critical communications networks.”
The collaboration between Northrop Grumman, AT&T and Fujitsu
is designed to drive innovation at speed to deliver a
cost-effective, scalable, open architecture solution for the DoD.
This approach can enable rapid deployment of new capabilities and
shorten the decision-making timeline in a multi-domain, contested
environment – a key component in laying the foundation for Joint
All-Domain Command and Control.
