Taqtile, a provider of enterprise software that leverages augmented reality (AR) for knowledge capture and sharing, has today announced that it is working together with management and information technology consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton, to demonstrate the capabilities of 5G and Taqtile’s ‘Manifest’ augmented reality (AR) platform.

The project, which is taking place at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) in Washington state, US, is designed to test the security, scalability, and resilience of 5G networks and the advanced capabilities of augmented and virtual reality (VR).

The JBLM deployment is part of a USD $600 million investment by the Department of Defense (DoD) to test 5G at five US military sites. According to the DoD, the project represents “the largest full-scale 5G test for dual-use applications in the world.” Planned projects include implementing 5G-enabled AR/VR platforms for equipment maintenance and repairs, mission planning and training, and use in smart warehouses.
