US military is implementing a program to introduce 5G and artificial intelligence into space systems

20

The American military command continues to work on the implementation of new communications and communications options at US military bases. First of all, we are talking about the implementation of the 5G format and communication networks. The US Air Force reported that such a communication format was implemented at three large United States airbases - Elmendorf-Richardson (Alaska), Offutt (Nebraska) and Buckley (Colorado).


As reported by the US Air Force command, a program is now being implemented to interact with the Space Command to use the 5G communication format and in military interests in outer space. In statements by the US Air Force General Staff, it is said that this communication format will reduce the "response time" when transferring data between objects of the near-earth satellite constellation and command posts, which will improve the efficiency of missions.

From the report:

We need to adapt the 5G network to the needs of space systems operated for a variety of purposes, including the military.

It was noted that this is one of the aspects of a more ambitious program, which is associated with the introduction of artificial intelligence in space systems "with the possibility of self-learning" and increasing cyber security. For what purposes in the constellation of US military satellites "self-learning" artificial intelligence will be used, and to what extent we control this process from the Earth - the question remains unanswered so far.

The document, which is being discussed by American military experts, also presents a range of technical issues. Among them is the following: "Is it possible to deploy compact, low-cost antenna arrays with high gain and data transmission channels in the 5G millimeter-wave band from 24 to 71 GHz to create secure data transmission networks in space?"

This and other issues in the United States are discussed at a special conference held by the Air Force command.

      the main thing for AI is to learn the phrase: "Houston, we have problems ..." but can we go to "Ivans"?

      zxc15682 is a new version of manna from heaven? What's wrong with 4G networks? We just have equipment that is not capable of giving the maximum signal speed in 4th generation networks, a signal reaches your smartphone tablet with a download speed of 30mGb / s, and the maximum speed in 4G networks is one terabyte per second! The speed is higher, this is already 5G networks! So, if you received a signal at a speed of 400 mGb / s, and your download speed was 120 mGb / s, you would not really need 5G networks!

    Americans are such entertainers! ... And hypersound to the fleet, despite the fact that it is not on land. And they are trying to appropriate the Moon, but there is not the slightest idea of ​​how to get there. And SDI was a masterpiece. Now they have taken up the AI, at which their own And is not enough
    Creatively, they master budgets. Just enviable somehow. repeat

      Uh-huh, they are in their own style:
      * The higher the frequency, the more the signal is attenuated, in proportion to the square of the distance. To an orbit, even the lowest, is a hundred kilometers of the atmosphere.
      * Most countries use 3,4-3,8 GHz ... Well, tripods do not exchange for such trifles. It's still okay in space, but how will they communicate with the earth at frequencies
      24 to 71 GHz
      winked Only with Houston, who has "problems"? Few people will pull a thirty-meter dish on a hump for reception from a satellite

    There is no artificial intelligence in the world, since there is no exact formulation of what it is! That which all over the world is called pathetically "Artificial Intelligence" is in fact only its analogue, ANALOGUE! !!

      At the same time, there are beautifully made voice interfaces that simulate communication with a person at a fairly high quality level.

    No matter how their "artificial intelligence" starts swearing in Russian .. ..
    And then everyone is complaining about Russian hackers there, Russian hackers here)))
    If I were in the place of the Amers, I would not boast too much ..

    But what about the robot Fedor? cryingThey said on TV that he himself can lead the KK! The coolest and most tested in space. ORT will not tell lies! laughing

      And it's not in vain that it strains.
      In the era of ballistic missiles flying in space at a speed of 20+ MAX,
      transmission speed is critical
      for missile defense.
      Trajectory data must be transmitted, processed and received
      to command posts faster than an ICBM flies.
      And these are large packages of information.
      Data received in advance does not guarantee interception, of course,
      but they increase the chances of a meeting between the warhead and the killer-interceptor.

    But our Roskosmos has launched its own ... TV channel! .. "First Space". At a time when dastardly Americans are broadcasting live from Mars on the Internet, our corporation will play good old films and cartoons about space on TV! And the work on "Vostochny", they write, was stopped again .. by a court decision .. for 90 days .. - in the papers, do you understand again some discrepancies .. the letters will be compared for three months .. and the signatures will be collated .. - and then the financial circuit will again be unclosed, and billions will break free to offshore freedom ..)) Returning to the TV channel .. - this machinery eats a lot of money .. if broadcasting to the whole country .. And the states are needed .. brave announcers, correspondents, operators., pavilions, equipment, cars, satellites ... Ah! there are satellites! .. In general, songs, skyscrapers and television .. - the journalist won the cosmonaut ...))

      This is not "your" TV channel. This is a TV channel in cooperation.

      PSO "Kazan": construction of the launch pad for "Angara" continues, and the court decision will be appealed. We are talking there about untimely submitted documents. Bureaucracy.

    You just need to notify the population of the states about the negative impact of 5G on human health, moreover, that the big push of the coronavirus pandemic is due to this ... and I assure you that arsonists and detonators will be found ... wink

      Deadly for 5G - if you let in the US information from "sources that seem reliable" (J. Psaki (c) - love) that it, this is 5G, was invented by the Russians in order to harm American democracy with its harmful radiation.
