WASHINGTON, June 14, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has issued a request for a prototype proposal (RPP) to members of the National Spectrum Consortium (NSC) in support of telemedicine research and technology 5G and medical training.
To provide the best possible solutions to the DoD, the NSC has invited members of the Consortium of Medical Technology Companies (MTEC) to review the RPPs and possibly equip themselves with NSC proponents.
The RPP focuses on two objectives:
- The development of a 5G-enabled augmented reality (RA) training platform that houses multiple participants in a single trainer / facilitator; i
- AR 5G-enabled remote control for medical procedures, which allows real-time communication between a student at a remote location and a medical specialist located at the center.
“This initiative represents an exciting opportunity to make significant progress in the quality of military care for our combatants by leveraging the latest developments in 5G and augmented reality, dit Maren Leed, Executive Director of the National Spectrum Consortium. “Putting these technologies into practice would mean that our soldiers, sailors, aviators and marines operating in remote locations will be supported by state-of-the-art care. At the same time, DoD investments will help advance the business state. of technology -art when it comes to using AR for medical training and counseling, for the benefit of the nation at large. “
“Augmented reality has the real potential to create three-dimensional immersive learning experiences to train and guide military medical personnel in critical care and trauma settings from remote locations.” said the strategy director of the national spectrum consortium, Vice Admiral Joseph Dyer, USN (ret). “When fully developed and implemented, it will bring medical knowledge from anywhere in the world to the battlefield and save lives. We are delighted to see the innovative solutions that NSC and MTEC member teams will offer DoD in this important area of health.” and the safety of our men and women in uniform. “
Request for prototype proposal
NSC-21-RPP-06-5G Telemedicine and medical training – NSC members in the region can submit proposals in response to the RPPs. MTEC members are welcome to team up with NSC members as part of a proposal team, or if they want to be lead contractors, to become an NSC member. Proposals are submitted July 21st a 11:59 ET.
Spectrum Forward OTA
Last December, the DOD awarded the Spectrum Forward Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) to the National Spectrum Consortium (NSC) to accelerate the development, adoption, and deployment of next-generation technologies that provide our fighters with a decisive advantage in the field. of battle. The OTA has a term of five years and a maximum value of $ 2.5 billion. The goal of the Spectrum Forward OTA is to facilitate a partnership between industrial technology and the industrial base and the U.S. government to develop or leverage a wide range of dual-use technologies that enhance or build on the use of spectrum. electromagnetic, from the dynamic spectrum access to machine learning to autonomous navigation to next generation radio access networks. This year, DOD has published several RPP through the Spectrum Forward OTA related to spectrum sharing in contested environments.
NSC members have extensive experience in the following areas related to the electromagnetic spectrum and advanced wireless technologies: ubiquitous connectivity; Access and sharing of the cognitive spectrum; Cyber security; Cooperative systems of radio frequency free space optics; Autonomous systems (land / air / sea); Internet of things (narrow / critical / massive band); Electronic warfare; Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (SRI); Software-defined radios / networks / architectures; Radar systems; Digital signal processing; Microelectronics; Software reconfigurability; Nanotechnology; Machine learning / Artificial intelligence; Autonomy / Robotics; Biotechnology; Big Data Analytics; Edge and Cloud Computing; Augmented / virtual / mixed reality; Location detection; 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing; and 5th generation (5G) information communications technologies, products, and services, including the use of zero trust.
About the National Spectrum Consortium
The NSC is made up of more than 400 American companies and academic institutions. Its technologists, engineers, scientists, manufacturers, and program managers work with their government counterparts to solve the nation’s most difficult spectrum problems and spectrum-enabled technologies, providing the DoD and other customers a spectrum superiority.
