COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Feb. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Vectrus Systems Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vectrus, Inc. (NYSE: VEC), announced today that it was awarded a prime contract for the Naval Base Coronado 5G Smart Warehouse to provide industry-leading inventory management, network security, robotic material moving, and environmental sensing capabilities.
The objective of the Naval Base Coronado 5G Smart Warehouse project is to develop a 5G-enabled Smart Warehouse focused on transshipment between shore facilities and naval units, to increase the efficiency and fidelity of naval logistic operations, including identification, recording, organization, storage, retrieval, and transportation of materiel and supplies. Additionally, the project will create a proving ground for testing, refining, and validating emerging 5G-enabled technologies.
"We are excited to support the Navy's groundbreaking smart warehouse prototype in a competitive arena focused on technological solutions that are now being applied within traditional facility and base operations and IT services," said Corinne Minton-Package, Senior Vice President of Operational Technology and Enterprise Vectrus. "This is an opportunity to lend our technological expertise in support of the clients' migration towards the converged infrastructure market and move away from traditional ways of operating their facilities, supply chains, and networks."
Vectrus' support at Naval Base Coronado is part of the DoD's $600 million project for 5G experimentation and testing at five U.S. military test sites, representing the largest full-scale 5G tests for dual-use applications in the world. Each installation will partner with military Services, industry leaders, and academic experts to advance the Department's 5G capabilities.
