Public safety communication systems must continue to work, and are even more necessary under circumstances in which other networks fail. Individual responders need to be able to operate in areas without cellular network coverage. Groups of responders will need to bring coverage with them, in scenarios ranging from a handful of police officers patrolling a remote road to thousands of wildland firefighters and support staff with semi-permanent command posts and camps. Backhaul connections, if they exist at all, will be much more limited in throughput, reliability, and latency than local networks. Disasters may take out power, backhaul, or cellular towers over significant areas. Jamming, deliberate or accidental may impair specific frequencies over a wide area. We wish to ensure that public safety communication, including access to data and computation continues to function in such scenarios.
