Samsung and the US Army Communications Electronics Research & Development Engineering Center have announced their joint venture to test some Mobile WiMAX technology over the next few months. The experimentation will take place at Ft. Dix in New Jersey by the Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance On-The-Move team (seriously, that’s a long @ss name and I think I have carpel tunnel now).
The engineers at CERDEC will be testing the performance of Mobile WiMAX products to see if the cost and accessibility will help US troops when they need to relay critical information in a short amount of time.
Samsung EVP of Telecommunications Systems Division had this to say,
“Mobile WiMAX brings a variety of opportunities in the way people communicate. We are very excited to provide and introduce Mobile WiMAX technology to the U.S. Army, who could have a variety of unique implementations. Mobile WiMAX continues to expand globally – and Samsung will, at every step of the way, open new doors of opportunity.”
