PSCR is excited to announce the release of the 2018 NIST PSIAP MCVQOE pdf for research and development grants and cooperative agreements.
PSCR is seeking applications from eligible applicants for activities to measure the impact of impairments to mission critical voice (MCV) systems and quantify the quality of experience (QoE) for first responders. Award recipients will help achieve this by creating test devices and infrastructure to simulate these impairments, develop a test capability/methodology for human testing, and apply these tests to a diverse pool of first responders representing multiple disciplines, regions, and demographics while performing critical tasks in realistic operating conditions. This research data will be key in quantifying the impact on real users of public safety mission critical push-to-talk (MCPTT) systems and their corresponding QoE.
Applications are due no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, Friday, August 3, 2018. Read the full NOFO on Grants.gov.
A webinar to provide general information and discuss important considerations has been scheduled for Tuesday, June 19, at 9AM ET/11AM MT. Register for the webinar here.
