5G Test Bed - 5GRIT Project


Blue Bear is excited to be a part of 5GRIT, a world class consortium of UK companies and academia who have been funded to deliver a research programme under the UKs 5G test bed initiative to build a 5G test bed in multiple locations across the UK including Alston Moor, and Lincolnshire.

The test bed will be used to demonstrate how 5G can be installed to support rural communities with internet access and to enable experimentation for real world applications. Blue Bear will be working with consortium partners and experimenting with 5G infrastructure to enable next generation BVLOS technology for drones, Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM), drone data collection to support precision arable agriculture, next generation thinking for livestock monitoring, and power lines/utilities infrastructure inspection. Data collected will also be used in augmented reality applications for tourism.

The team is led by Quickline Communications Ltd (the largest supplier of rural broadband in the UK) and includes Cybermoor 5G Services Ltd, Broadway Partners, North Pennines AONB Partnership, Precision Decisions Ltd, WT Info Tech Private Ltd, Kingston University, Lancaster University, Kings College London and Blue Bear Systems Research Ltd.
