The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:
26 March 2019 -- Glimpses of that military communications future are taking shape through the smoke of the conflict between the U.S. and Huawei, the telecommunications giant created by communist China to dominate manufacturing and implementation of 5G networks.
5G data moves at 10 gigabytes per second, and latency is less than a millisecond, a hundred times faster than 4G. These attributes will connect sensors and enable unmanned air, sea, subsurface, and ground vehicles to become autonomous.
Imagine a group of skirmishers in a jungle, each of them wearing a wireless networking wristwatch. Suddenly one soldier is shot by an enemy combatant and loses consciousness. His smart wearable device detects his condition, tightens a belt around his wounded thigh, injects an adrenaline shot, and sends an emergency alert to the field hospital as well as to the entire team.
