    On Oct. 8, 2020, the U.S. Air Force Warfare Center announced the award of a Department of Defense (DoD) contract to build the 5G network infrastructure and support services necessary to establish a dual-use, military and commercial network on Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada and the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) as directed in the FY20 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
