5G Communications for Peacekeeping and Defence project moves forward to system requirements for use case demonstrations

On June 14-16, the 5G Communications for Peacekeeping and Defence (5G COMPAD) project consortium held a plenary meeting to discuss the next steps for taking the defined 5G use cases towards systems requirements. The three-day meeting was hosted by Bittium and took place in the company’s headquarters in Oulu, Finland.

The plenary meeting followed one of the important milestones for the 5G COMPAD project – the definition of the project use cases. The meeting was attended by 50 representatives from 15 project consortium members who discussed the next steps for the successful continuation of the project. 

Prior to the plenary meeting, the 5G COMPAD consortium had finalized the scope of the project use cases, and during the meeting, they shared insights and made plans on how to define the system requirements. This was a key step toward the eventual demonstration of the project use cases for 5G in the land, naval, and air domains.

The 5G COMPAD project aims to demonstrate the relevance of 5G mobile communications technology in support of sustained information superiority and provide European defence forces with efficient and resilient multi-dimensional communication systems with improved functionality and life cycle cost advantages. The project is co-funded by the EU and supported by ten European governments through their defence ministries.

The 5G COMPAD project consortium members are Saab, Ericsson, Rheinmetall, Bittium, Nokia, Thales, Leonardo, Inster, Eightbells, Intracom Defence, CAFA Tech, Telenor, SINTEF, FFI (Norwegian Defence Research Establishment), LMT (Latvijas Mobilais Telefons), AIT (Austrian Institute of Technology), Synkzone, BHE (Bonn Hungary Electronics), and APR Technologies. The project subcontractors are CEA (Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives), CNIT (National, Inter-University Consortium for Telecommunications), Fraunhofer FKIE, and Space Hellas SA.
