The Michigan Aerospace Manufacturers Association in Sterling Heights states it has received the first in a series of investments that will allow Michigan to take a leadership role in developing 5G Space-Enabled Communications for Advanced Mobility, or SECAM, for commercial and government users. The investment amount was not disclosed.
With MAMA as the lead of the public-private collaboration, the SECAM Research and Development Project would draw private, government, and academic partners to develop a secured space/terrestrial mesh 5G system that will incorporate existing terrestrial 5G technology. The 5G mesh system will utilize near-earth-orbit satellite 5G technology for ground, air, water, and space missions.
“MAMA is honored to take the lead in convoking the SECAM Research and Development Project,” says Gavin Brown, executive director of MAMA. “The future of connectivity is a national security and economic development priority for the U.S., and we feel Michigan is well-suited to convene this collaboration.
