Intel, Lockheed Martin Advance 5G-Ready Comms

Lockheed Martin’s 5G.MIL will use Intel solutions – from the cloud to the edge – to address complex communications challenges.

Extending a strategic relationship that spans a decade, Intel and Lockheed Martin have entered a new memorandum of understanding (MOU) that harnesses innovative 5G software and hardware solutions to enable faster and more decisive actions for the U.S. Department of Defense.

Intel’s proven 5G solutions are integrated into Lockheed Martin’s 5G.MIL® Hybrid Base Station, which acts as a multi-network gateway for ubiquitous communications between military personnel and current and emerging platforms including satellites, aircraft, ships and ground vehicles. Lockheed Martin also leverages Intel’s advanced processor technologies and innovations on network as well as edge to bring cloud capabilities to the areas of tactical need.

“Together, Intel and Lockheed Martin are utilizing the power of 5G to deliver greater connectivity, faster and more reliable networks, and new data capabilities to the DOD,” said Dan Rodriguez, corporate vice president at Intel. “This shows how cloud, network and edge technologies that are proven in enterprise implementations can also bring significant value to the tactical needs of modern defense systems.”

The collaboration ensures data-driven decision making – across air, sea, land, space and cyber domains – in support of national security efforts.
