Back 5G Cellular Communications for Flight Deck Radios to Reduce Electromagnetic Signature

Summary We will investigate how Navy can take advantage of 5G mobile communications advancements and whether flight deck personnel can use that technology to their advantage. 5G radios use higher frequencies that can support high data rates and narrow beams, but have limited communications range. The limited range can be an asset in the context of flight deck communications because the Navy's flight deck radio is a unique signal that could compromise the location of CVNs when conducting flight operations if adversaries receive it.
