Secure Private 5G for Defence

‘5G-Enabled’ Defence Technology

With the general move to 5G, the use of private 5G has become increasingly attractive for defence forces as it is a critical and versatile civil technology that could be a key enabler to develop future defence technology.

Potential applications of the private 5G include facilitating next-generation ‘future factory’ manufacturing capabilities, remote AR/VR defence personnel training and remote proactive maintenance activities.  Due to increased data speed, reduced latency, and improved reliability of data transfer, private 5G opens new operational capabilities in the defence space.

Private networks can also span from national coverage to tactical deployment within a limited geographical area. This put demands on flexibility and scalability, up and down, for the cybersecurity solution to protect it. In the context of defence technology, ensuring that private 5G network is secure and robust carries even more significane than its commercial counterparts. 

Across Europe, various military research organisations are piloting private 5G projects, for example 5G COMPAD, as part of defence innovation to explore a wide range of secure data delivery opportunities
