PSIAP 2017 - Public Safety Analytics

Over the next decade, as public safety’s use of mobile broadband technologies increases, first responders will gain unprecedented access to ‘big data’ and data analytics that can be both collected from, and delivered to, mobile devices and sensors. While there is no doubt analytics will play an increasingly important role in the future public safety communications ecosystem, solutions are needed to address the volume, variety, velocity, veracity, validity, and volatility of data. In order to further the creation and consumption of potentially transformational operational analytics capabilities for first responders, PSCR  partnered with external researchers on R&D projects that address data sets, analytics tools and frameworks, data analysis applications.

The awarded projects demonstrate forward-looking, innovative R&D focused on solving novel challenges posed by the criticality and complexity of the data relevant to the public safety operational environment. The projects include R&D that will leverage new capabilities in the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network to circulate a rich diversity of data created by a variety of sensors, devices, and communications, and will harness the enormous computing power of potentially millions of edge-enabled devices to optimize and transform the flow of real-time actionable information to first responders and incident commanders.
