Lockheed Delivers OSIRIS 5G Testbed Prototype to US Marine Corps

Lockheed Martin has delivered to the U.S. Marine Corps the final Phase 1 Initial Prototype variant of a 5G testbed designed to support communications network-related experimentation.

The testbed variant of the Open Systems Interoperable and Reconfigurable Infrastructure Solution was delivered to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in California where personnel will perform mobile network experimentation. 

Emerging wireless technologies will be assessed to determine which will be integrated into the 5G testbed to build out three configurations, namely: a 5G nomadic tower that can be mounted on a trailer; a 5G mobile relay that can be mounted on an all-terrain vehicle; and a 5G operational facility that can be deployed via a transit case, Lockheed said Thursday.

OSIRIS is part of Lockheed’s 5G .MIL program, which works to enable rapid experimentation and dual-use technology prototyping. The platform will determine how 5G networks and Department of Defense platforms can work together, explore how commercial 5G can be used for military purposes and enable the Pentagon’s Joint All-Domain Operations concept.

Lockheed started developing OSIRIS in 2022 after receiving a $19.3 million Prototype Project Agreement from the DOD. Lockheed Vice President for Spectrum Convergence Deon Viergutz said the platform will host experiments for high-bandwidth connectivity, communications devices, sensors, artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities.
