Lockheed, Verizon Agree to Collaborate on 5G Tech Offering for Defense Clients

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Verizon (NYSE: VZ) have signed a partnership agreement to develop 5G technology platforms intended for U.S. military use across all battlefield domains.

Under a strategic deal, the two companies aim to produce an integrated 5G.MIL network that can support the Department of Defense’s communications infrastructure and its joint all-domain operations framework, Verizon said Tuesday.

The agreement comes after both parties tested the potential of Lockheed’s open mission system gateway architectures to interoperate with the telecommunication company’s 5G Ultra Wideband Service.

Kyle Malady, chief technology officer of Verizon, said the partnership seeks to help DOD address technology implementation goals associated with the new wireless technology.
