PSCR is dedicated to helping the research community flourish by providing valuable resources including a comprehensive collection of reports, studies, and publications. In this library, you can find a wide variety of resources organized by each research portfolio, including datasets, publications, open-source software, and more.
The User Interface/User Experience (UI/UX) portfolio strives for first responders to have tools designed around their specific context, tasks, and requirements, based on user-centered design and feedback.
The Mission-Critical Voice (MCV) portfolio concentrates on four areas of communications for first responders: direct mode, mission critical push to talk, LMR to LTE, and public safety user quality of experience.
The Location-Based Services (LBS) portfolio focuses on the fields of indoor mapping, tracking, and navigation for the public safety community.
The Analytics portfolio supports research around algorithms, datasets, and open-source tools that can be leveraged by public safety organizations to analyze emergency events.
Security, including cybersecurity, is an area which will affect every aspect of public safety communications. PSCR aims to develop and enhance security solutions to current and future public safety communications.
First responders often operate under dangerous and life-threatening circumstances. The Resilient Systems portfolio ensures their technology works when they need it most.
