Public Safety services and mission critical systems must be available and function properly in situations of poor network connectivity due to either routine faults or catastrophic events, whether man-made or natural disasters. Examples of resilient systems and services include: voice communication among responders; read access to existing data sets (e.g., maps, databases, imagery, reference material); write access to shared data (e.g., a responder or dispatcher enters information, or a sensor generates data, that is available to other public safety personnel); information intake from the general public; information output to the general public; and computation & data services (e.g., GIS, CAD, analytics).
The awarded PSIAP R&D projects aim to evaluate or enhance the resilience of public safety mission critical systems in the face of connectivity challenges. This includes traditional research, evaluation prototypes, and enhancements to existing systems.
