The company said Monday it tested the new satellite-based 5G with the National Security Innovation Network, a group that brings industry, academia and military together to address defense challenges via new technology.
A group of 5G devices transmitted communications and data to Omnispace's satellite via LinQuest's Virginia-based facility.
NSIN tapped Omnispace in 2020 for the initial development of a technology related to Verizon's Living Lab, a testing platform for 5G technologies.
Campbell Marshall, vice president of government and international markets at Omnispace, said the company's S-band spectrum powers a non-terrestrial network technology that would facilitate device-to-satellite 5G communications.
"Omnispace is honored to have been selected to work with the U.S. Navy and Marines to demonstrate 5G capability from space," he said.
