COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., March 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Vectrus, Inc. (NYSE: VEC) has been selected by the Department of Defense to complete the final phases of application development for a 5G Smart Warehouse at Naval Base Coronado (NBC). The NBC 5G Smart Warehouse Assessment Team conducted a down select during Phase 1, comparing application solutions from three companies including Vectrus.

Vectrus successfully demonstrated a Converged Environment solution, addressing NAVSUP operational challenges through the implementation of advanced technology applications.
Vectrus' solutions focused on increasing efficiency, reducing costs, improving readiness and cybersecurity, and strengthening national security. The NBC 5G Smart Warehouse Assessment Team participated in live demonstrations of technologies at the 5G Converged Environment Smart Warehouse – Vectrus' 5G smart technology testbed – just outside of Richmond, Virginia.
The smart warehouse is a realization of Vectrus' Converged Environment concept, bringing together the support services, including base operations support, supply chain and logistics, IT and network operations, engineering and digital integration, and security, in one synchronized environment.
"The smart warehouse will serve as a test bed for refining, validating and operationalizing 5G-enabled technologies," said Corinne Minton-Package, Senior Vice President of Systems and Technology at Vectrus.
