Key Takeaways from Federal R&D Workshop Focused on 5G Testing and Use Cases for Drones and Smart Warehouses | Wiley Rein LLP

Protect yourself from online attacks that threaten your identity, your files, your system, and your financial well-being.

On April 27 and 28, 2021, the Networking & Information Technology Research-Development (NITRD), Advanced Wireless Test Platform (AWTP), and Federal Mobility Group (FMG) hosted a Workshop on the FMG’s Framework to Conduct 5G Testing (Framework), published last November. The purpose of the webinar was to “provide an overview of the process and the testing framework elements needed to conduct 5G testing for different use cases.” The workshop focused on two selected federal 5G use cases: unmanned aircraft systems (UAS or drones) and smart warehouses.

Below, we highlight several key takeaways from the workshop. 

First, the Framework aims to guide federal agencies in establishing 5G testing capabilities suited to their needs through either: (1) building or leasing a testbed from a carrier-grade equipment manufacturer; (2) using existing external labs and testbeds (e.g., a federal lab, university lab, or in coordination with DoD); or (3) through some combination of the two. 

Second, the National Science Foundation (NSF) is focused on how the Government is using both testbeds and data-driven research to support 5G use and innovation. NSF recently issued a Request For Information on dataset needs “to conduct research on computer and network systems,” with comments due by May 21.

Third, the FMG’s Mobile Security Working Group is focused on FISMA mobility metrics to drive key technologies like mobile threat defense, which aims to advance the overall security posture of the federal government on mobile platforms. 

Fourth, within NITRD and the AWTP there is a Wireless Spectrum R&D interagency working group (WSRD) that has been involved in the whole-of-government effort under the National Strategy to Secure 5G Implementation Plan’s Line of Effort 1.1, to assist with “[r]esearch, development, and testing to reach and maintain United States leadership in secure 5G and beyond.” WSRD’s work related to this Line of Effort remains ongoing.

5G Use Case: Drones

The workshop included several UAS use case panels, which discussed the use of cellular frequencies for drone operations and UAS Traffic Management (UTM) issues.

Dyslexic thinkers key to solving UK cyber security challenges

Dyslexic professionals are making the difference in solving the UK’s cyber security challenges, according to the government’s intelligence and cyber agency GCHQ.

In a video podcast by charity Made by Dyslexia, broadcast today (29 April), Jo Cavan, a senior GCHQ director, joined two dyslexic spies, Charlotte and Rob – real names have been changed for security reasons – who discussed how neurodiversity has contributed to their everyday jobs.

The discussion has covered how the spies’ strengths contribute to solutions when considering complex future scenarios and finding solutions to new and challenging problems.

“Since our inception we have looked to hire individuals who are neurodiverse, and as a result we have a thriving community of colleagues who think differently,” said Cavan, a director of strategy, policy and engagement at GCHQ.

In her work as an intelligence analyst working in GCHQ’s 24/7 operations centre, Charlotte finds her approach to finding solutions is very different: “I’m often looking through a lot of data and I find that my dyslexia helps me to see the bigger picture and spot patterns that aren’t always obvious to everyone else around me,” she said.

A “transformational innovator” at GCHQ, Rob works closely with Britain’s armed forces and was deployed with the military in the Balkans and Iraq. He noted that his dyslexic skills have enabled him to do things differently:

“I speak to a lot of people internally who invent stuff and a lot of contacts in industry, and explore how we could use our capabilities in ways we’d never planned, often to deliver amazing effects,” he added.

Cavan said the centre is committed to recruiting people with dyslexia as well as other neurodiverse individuals, and that it has a high proportion of dyslexic apprentices.

“We are about three or four times more likely to have apprentices with dyslexia than on other apprenticeship schemes,” said Cavan, adding that it is “mission critical” for GCHQ.

The D.Spot video podcast also noted previous comments made by GCHQ director Jeremy Fleming, speaking at Made by Dyslexia’s Global Summit in 2019 on the value of dyslexic thinking.
