FEATURED REPORT – 5G force: Preparing to operate on an increasingly crowded spectrum

by Tom Withington

Fifth-generation or ‘5G’ has become a catch-all term for an emerging series of wireless communications protocols that proponents say will give enhanced data speeds, potentially of up to 2 Gb/s, and the capacity of cellular networks to host a greater number of users compared with existing fourth generation (4G) and Long Term Evolution (LTE) wireless protocols.

5G, which is being rolled out across the world by various telecommunications companies, inhabits several low-band, mid-band, and millimetre-wave (MMW) segments of the radio spectrum.

The US Army’s march towards multidomain operations could increase reliance on 5G protocols to handle an exponential increase in bandwidth heralded by MDO. (TCI)
Raytheon’s AN/SPY-6 naval surveillance radar is equipping the latest examples of the US Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class destroyers. These radars transmit in S-band and X-band, and there are concerns that such systems  could be adversely affected by 5G communications protocols. (US Navy)

Taiwan proposes USD8.6 billion for defence ‘special' fund

by Jon Grevatt & Andrew MacDonald

Janes Defence Budgets forecasts that Taiwan's total defence expenditure will grow strongly in real terms in 2022 but will also likely decline by a similar margin in 2027 when allocated and proposed ‘special' funding ends. (Janes Defence Budgets)

Taiwan's Executive Yuan has announced a plan to spend TWD240 billion (USD8.6 billion) over the next five years to bolster naval and air combat capabilities.

The funding is designated as a ‘special' expenditure, and will be in addition to annual defence budget allocations. The new expenditure will also be focused on procuring local equipment and systems instead of imports.
