A 5G project will set a new standard for deploying advanced wireless applications on military installations and demonstrate the tangible benefits of 5G and the Manifest AR platform on a military base.
Taqtile and Booz Allen Hamilton are working together to demonstrate the capabilities of 5G and the Manifest augmented reality (AR) platform at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) in Washington state.
The project is designed to test the security, scalability, and resilience of 5G networks and the advanced capabilities of augmented reality/virtual reality. It is part of a $600 million investment by the Department of Defense (DOD) to test 5G at five U.S. military sites.
Planned projects include implementing 5G-enabled augmented reality/virtual reality platforms for equipment maintenance and repairs, mission planning and training, and use in smart warehouses.
Manifest can serve as a digital repository for maintenance and repair information, including video and audio “notes,” and related documents. Equipment-specific repair information can be seamlessly transferred between personnel, reducing delays and the risk of human error. Manifest can also automatically upload all saved documents to a centralized maintenance queue for quick access to accurate materials.
