Partnerships are at the core of PSCR’s mission to accelerate advancements to public safety communications and our Research and Development (R&D) charter. Meaningful partnerships and collaboration add value to PSCR’s R&D outputs and services and aid in the development of innovative solutions to critical public safety communications gaps. Our partnerships help to connect people and ideas, collaborating around common goals, and pooling knowledge and resources to advance public safety technologies.
