|Award Name||Award Amount||Award Dates||Award Description||Application Deadline|
|Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program - Mission Critical Voice Quality of Experience||Up to $3M*||Up to 3 Years beginning FY2019||
PSCR sought 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. 2018-NIST-PSIAP-MCVQOE 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.
