Because we rely on a diverse set of stakeholders across government, public safety, industry, and academia to continually inform our progress, we're going on the road to share our mission - and connect - with public safety stakeholders where they live and work.
PSCR's federally-funded research is aimed at advancing a wide-range of first responder communications technologies, including projects that impact mission critical voice, location-based services, data analytics, security, resilient systems, and user interfaces/user experience. PSCR accelerates innovation by investing in these research areas to transform the future of public safety communications, technologies, and operations.
We understand first responders' needs for reliable, modern, affordable communications technology devices, apps, and services. Since 2002, PSCR has worked with hundreds of public safety, government, and industry stakeholders through workshops and summits to identify public safety user requirements and put them at the forefront of our R&D investments. The voices of first responders are essential to the process; the PSCR Roadshow is a chance for YOU to personally experience our innovative technology prototypes and share your feedback.
PSCR brings a number of technology demonstrations on the road, including (but not limited to): augmented reality, virtual reality, SIM card multi-factor authentication, audio quality testing, and LiDAR. Whenever possible, PSCR invites external award recipients to bring their demonstrations as well. Past award recipient demos have included Real-Time Video Analytics for Situation Awareness, Mission Critical Voice Quality Under Adjustable Realistic Conditions, Mixed Reality Training and Testing Facility for First Responders, and Cognition-Driven Display for Navigation Activities.
