Booz Allen Hamilton Secures New US Navy Contract for 5G Network Service

The U.S. Navy has granted a two-year, $10 million contract to Booz Allen Hamilton for the installation of a private 5G mobile network in Guam. The McClean, Virginia-based contractor noted that the award, its first 5G full-scale contract in the Indo-Pacific, will provide the Navy and the Department of Defense with the technology to improve their communication and logistics in the region. 

According to Chris Christou, Booz Allen senior vice president and a 4×24 member, the company is confident that its 5G solution is capable of overcoming the challenges of Guam’s distributed, edge-like environments, Booz Allen said Thursday.

The company’s 5G network will be installed at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility Detachment’s Naval Base Guam and will provide mobile and fixed wireless access.

Booz Allen is the main contractor and will work with partners in 5G, telecom, internet of things and smart warehousing sectors. The project’s technical aspects, such as zero trust design, will integrate experience from ongoing DOD 5G projects. The templates include Booz Allen’s radio-frequency identification asset tagging project for modernizing the U.S. Navy’s logistics operations.

In June 2023, Booz Allen also won a potential $85 million Navy contract for technical services to support manpower recruitment and training on information warfare.
