Spectrum allocation for licensed use underpins much of modern society, including U.S. national security. The U.S. must move past the false dichotomy of commercial interests vs. natural security when it comes to spectrum. These industries can, and must, work together to achieve mutual interests. 

Join CSIS for an event on the importance of next generation cellular wireless technologies for economic and national security. The event will feature opening remarks from Member of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee Sen. Todd Young (R-IN) and Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology Rep. Bob Latta (R-OH). Panelists include Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission Brendan Carr, founder of the Krach Institute for Tech Diplomacy Keith Krach, Senior Vice President for Strand Consult and advisor at the Krach Institute for Tech Diplomacy Roslyn Layton, and CSIS Senior Fellow (non-resident) Clete Johnson. The event will also highlight key findings of a series of CSIS reports on spectrum modernization to ensure national security and mitigate cyberattack scenarios on critical infrastructure.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
