Public Safety Communications Research Program A joint program

Public Safety Communications Research Program A joint program between NISTs Communications Technology Laboratory & NTIAs Institute for Telecommunication Sciences Department of Commerce Laboratories - Boulder, Colorado Contact [email protected] for information about PSCR PSCR Vision & Mission Vision: Through the use of advanced communications technologies, the public safety community can more effectively carry out their vital mission to protect lives and propertyfrom dayto-day operations to large events and emergencies. Mission: To fulfill this vision, the PSCR program acts as an objective technical advisor and laboratory for the public safety community to accelerate the adoption and implementation of only the most critical public safety communication technologies. PSCR Portfolio: Requirements Gathering

Federal Sponsors & Partners Academia PSCR Collaboration Efforts PSCR is a public safety practitioner-driven program Who: Public Safety Practitioners/First Responders Public Safety Agencies and Associations NPSTC, APCO, PSAC, etc. State and Local Government officials/agencies How: PSCR brings public safety practitioners into the labs for subjective testing on research projects such as Audio Quality and Video Quality Some research projects are introduced directly by the first responder community PSCR sponsors public safety user travel to communications technology events and conferences that they otherwise would not be able to participate in PSCR leads Working Groups and facilitates Workshops aimed at documenting public safetys unique requirements November 2013 Public Safety Broadband R&D Roadmapping Workshop

Brought together 150 representatives from across PSCRs Stakeholder base to develop a prioritized list of cross-disciplinary R&D areas for future public safety comms efforts PSCR Collaboration Efforts (cont.) PSCR collaborates closely with Industry partners Who: Vendors, manufacturers, and network carriers in the communications technology and RDT&E environment How: Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs) PSCR deployed the 700 MHZ Public Safety Broadband Demonstration Network in cooperation with over 75 CRADA partners Tens of millions of dollars worth of hardware and software to test & evaluate LTE technologies and features Industry engagements include conferences, workshops, and other events PSCRs annual Public Safety Broadband Stakeholder Conference PSCR leverages expertise in the Academic community through joint-projects such as the Indoor-In-building Testing effort in conjunction with the University of Colorado Boulder PSCR Collaboration Efforts (cont.)

PSCR is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Securitys Office of Interoperability and Compatibility, Department of Homeland Securitys Office of Emergency Communications, and FirstNet to perform the following: Requirements Gathering & Standards Development Research & Development Testing & Evaluation Modeling & Simulation PSCR engages with Federal Partners at the White House, Congress, FCC, DOJ, NTIA, etc. PSCR also collaborates with foreign governments and international organizations on issues related to public safety communications via 3GPP, CITIG, NPSTC, and more National Advanced Spectrum and Communications Test Network (NASCTN) NASCTNs mission is to increase commercial and Federal access to the spectrum by helping to accelerate the design and deployment of spectrum-sharing technologies through accurate testing and modeling. NASCTN is a capability within the joint NIST/NTIAs Center for Advanced

Communication and was established with the signing of an MOA between NIST, NTIA and the DOD CIO in March of 2015. Testing and modeling is performed by members (Federal agencies, industry and academia) of the NASCTN network. Contact Michae[email protected] for information about NASCTN. Credit: italianestro/Shutterstock NASCTN Key Functions Facilitate and coordinate spectrum sharing and engineering capabilities, Create a trusted capability for evaluating spectrum-sharing technologies, Perform outreach activities to identify spectrumrelated testing and modeling needs, and Protect proprietary, classified and sensitive information while facilitating maximum dissemination.
