Pentagon Looks to Tap 5G in Space
February 23, 2021 | Source|Defense One|
“Any aspect of 5G applied to any aspect of space systems is of potential interest,” says a new request for information.”
“The U.S. military moved to explore next-generation networking capabilities and tools that could advance how it moves vast volumes of data on and beyond planet Earth.
Space Force officials and others in the Air Force office responsible for enterprise data transport intend to tap “rapidly emerging 5G technologies to support space data transport terrestrially, in space, and in the space-ground links,” according to a request for information published by the latter Thursday.
“Any aspect of 5G applied to any aspect of space systems is of potential interest,” the document noted.
Experiments and pilots that will use 5G to reimagine warehouse logistics and transform health care delivery, among other future-focused applications, are already unfolding on multiple military bases.
The Pentagon players involved in this RFI confirmed that they’re concentrating on adapting 5G radio access networks to space-ground communications in contested environments—and on applying 5G network slicing and orchestration “to realize a federation of existing and emerging space data transport networks that include the legacy space control networks, ground data transport infrastructure, commercial augmentation services networks, partner networks, and potentially commercial 5G networks.” But those priorities could be adjusted, the document said, depending on existing, applicable solutions that could come to light.”

As a constituent I want to be clear that I do not consent to environmental or atmospheric contamination, from ground-based, or space based, microwave-irradiating systems.
Space satellites, which have zero public health and safety regulations, transmit microwave radiation, which is known-to-be hazardous pollution.
I’m requesting a detailed response as soon as possible, in writing, regarding exactly what actions Senator________ [or Representative________] is taking, to protect our environment, wildlife, and the public health from microwave radiation emissions.
Specifically, I want to know what efforts the Senator [or Representative] is taking NOW to HALT deployment of hazardous pulsed-Radiofrequency/Microwave (RF/MW) irradiating systems, on the ground, and from satellites in space. Thank you
