The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Office for Interoperability and Compatibility (OIC) has been a long-time sponsor of PSCR research projects. PSCR's work with DHS has direct impacts on best practices and technologies available to, and used by, first responders throughout the nation. It also produces valuable benefits to the research community through the flow of information resulting from engagement with the community in research projects and field exercises.




PSCR works with DHS to identify ongoing research areas which align with DHS and NIST priorities. Current R&D projects include:
  • In-Building Coverage Quality Measurement Tool
  • Speech Intelligibility and Degraded Radio Channels: Evaluation of new codec modes proposed for MC PTT
  • Broadband Demonstration Network - Deployables
  • Highly Mobile Deployed Networks
  • Wearable IoT Sensor Evaluation for Public Safety
  • Broadband Deployables Demonstration Support
  • Speech Analytic Technology for Public Safety Test and Evaluation
  • Public Safety Video Analytics Interoperability Roadmap
