In its most recent Executive Spotlight interview, ExecutiveBiz spoke with GovCon Expert Jill Singer, vice president of defense and national security for AT&T Public Sector and FirstNet, about the company’s work in support of the intelligence community, Department of Defense and other government customers.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Singer discussing AT&T’s selection to join DOD’s 5G-focused initiatives:
“We’re fortunate to have been chosen by DOD to participate in some of its 5G experimentation prototypes. One of the programs we’re involved with aims to explore the integration and use of augmented and virtual reality for warfighter training. The prototype is being developed at Fort Hood in Texas.
This program allows us to work with partners and the military to help ensure our soldiers are future-ready, which includes AR and VR capabilities integrated into their toolbox as they prepare for the future of warfare. This type of experiment required the development and delivery of wireless 5G. Our 5G delivers the speed, power, security, and reliability to support this program and demonstrate that DOD can enable the future soldier with AR and VR capabilities.”
