Next-Generation Wireless Communications for Logistics Applications

What is it?

Next-Generation Wireless Communications is a commercial-off-the-shelf technology integration effort focused on developing and integrating technologies to significantly enhance the visibility of Army and Department of Defense assets in both time and space.
