The Public Safety community is in a period of great transition. Over the next 20 years, technology advancements will enable data, video, and eventually voice communications to migrate from disparate Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks to a nationwide public safety Long Term Evolution (LTE) broadband network, the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN). Emerging technologies within this new infrastructure present opportunities and challenges for public safety, and the process of modernizing responder communications requires significant coordination and planning. To facilitate the transition from LMR to LTE, the Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) program initiated a research and development (R&D) planning process to determine what technology investments are of highest priority to the public safety community. This document summarizes the results of PSCRs Location-based Services R&D Roadmap. This Location-based Services (LBS) report is the first of several technology roadmaps that PSCR will develop over the next several years to better inform the investment decisions of R&D organizations supporting the public safety community.
