Open Generation 5G Consortium

Join technology & industry futurists on a mission to drive collaboration and 5G innovation for public good.

MITRE Engenuity Open Generation 5G Consortium is a 3GPP Market Representation Partner.

Enabling 5G Innovation Leadership Through Use Case-Driven Collaboration

Open Generation brings together diverse technical viewpoints from market leaders, innovative startups, industry associations, academics, and government liaisons. This collaborative effort aims to design, develop, demonstrate, and validate solutions that may be uniquely enabled by 5G capabilities to unlock massive economic value. Areas of impact include:

  • uncrewed aerial systems (UAS)
  • public safety
  • remote healthcare
  • smart cities
  • autonomous vehicles

View the Open Generation position paper to learn more about our use-case-focused approach to solving complex problems through R&D and experimentation, including details on existing work involving UAS over 5G, BVLOS, and operational transformation.

Achieving the Unachievable

Open Generation is dedicated to vetting and equipping private and commercial test ranges to further advance use-case-focused UAS experimentation that leads to real-world solutions.

We launched the nation’s first FAA-designated 5G aviation range for UAS — a 100-square-mile test network in New York that will allow BVLOS and long-range experimentation. By establishing advanced testing environments, Open Generation is accelerating UAS standards and the commercial development of UAS-based solutions in the United States.
