The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:
18 Jan. 2020 -- The research and development organization tackling future capabilities for the Army’s tactical network team has several efforts underway with millimeter wave technology -- a frequency channel that could improve communications in the future.
The Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command’s C5ISR (Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) Center is exploring new capabilities that could enable covert communications to evade enemy electronic warfare (EW) efforts.
The first area the service is exploring is WiGig, essentially the latest version of Wi-Fi that uses the 60 GHz frequency band. The service is attracted to WiGig because the advanced technology creates narrow beams that point in a specific direction, which could help Army command posts evade detection.
