Emergency Communication

st CAD-to-CAD Interoperability

Critical data is not available to all organizations (including fire, law enforcement, and EMS) responding to an emergency because the Computer-Aided-Dispatch systems that support each agency are unable to electronically exchange information. The Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) recognizes the national need for interoperability and is providing leadership to develop a viable solution. The overarching objective is to achieve a resilient public safety CAD-to-CAD ecosystem that is efficient, interoperable, and supports multi-discipline response to regional, multistate, and national events.

st Creating a Cyber-Resilient Public Safety Infrastructure

The scope of this Science and Technology Directorate-backed project relies on predictive analytics that gather cyber analytics to build public safety answering points threat environment situational awareness. Predictive and cyber analytics are used to improve the detection and elimination of cybersecurity attacks against current and future emergency communications systems.

st Information Sharing Safeguarding and Federated ICAM

Information sharing and safeguarding (IS&S) is a fundamental need of the U.S. public safety community. The community's IS&S requirements are substantial and increasing since it must respond to a wide-range of challenging, multi-agency emergencies such as opioid overdoses, school shooting incidents, and large-scale natural disasters.

IWCE 2021

S&T will participate virtually in five panels at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) on September 27-30, 2021, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
