Verizon named Adcor Magnet Systems, a Baltimore firm developing cameras and other sensors for real-time and remote streaming, to join four other law enforcement technology firms in its 5G First Responder Lab.

Verizon set up the Washington lab with Responder Corp to research applications of 5G wireless technology for police, fire agencies and other first responders.

5G is the next generation of cellular communications, capable of handling faster data speeds, energy savings, reduced costs and more capacity for more devices.

“5G is transformative and will bring new possibilities in technology,” said Nick Nilan, Verizon’s director of public sector product development, in a statement. “The companies chosen for the 5G First Responder Lab could bring unseen, potentially life-saving innovations to public safety.”

Adcor Magnet Systems is a sister company of Adcor Industries, a Highlandtown engineering and manufacturing firm with a variety of interests from firearms to packaging. Adcor Magnet develops and supplies 360-degree cameras, drones and other technology for first responder, security, media and military use.

Adcor and the other four firms were chosen from a pool of 50 applicants to join the lab where they will get access to the 5G network and collaborate with Verizon and Responder on product testing and “go-to-market” strategies.
