Social Mobile Receives SBIR Phase II Grant to Develop 5G Mobile Tech for USAF - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Original equipment manufacturer Social Mobile has secured its second Small Business Innovative Research contract from the U.S. Air Force to continue designing and creating a 5G mobile platform for the Air Force Special Operations Command.

The mobile offerings provider said Wednesday the award expands on an SBIR Phase I contract it won in 2021 under the Air Force AFWERX program.

Phase II of the project will involve developing a handheld device with an Android operating system and military-grade features. The chest-mountable, ruggedized gadget is also envisioned to have a guaranteed lifespan of at least three years.

The SBIR award makes Social Mobile’s product eligible for consideration by other branches of the U.S. armed forces.

Social Mobile is a Florida-based OEM, managed service provider and consultancy that markets mobility-as-a-service deployments in support of enterprise organizations’ business-critical operations.
