S&T MCAP Fact Sheet

In an emergency, it is vital that first responders are able to communicate and share information, regardless of the agency they represent. Yet, interoperability and information integration remain a challenge when it comes to real-time, multi-agency coordination.

To address this challenge, the Center for Visualization and Data Analytics (CVADA) at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Center of Excellence, developed the Mobile Computing Application Platform (MCAP) in partnership with the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center.

S&T CAB ISSI/CSSI Interoperability Testing Requirements and SDOC

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) continues its efforts to streamline the Supplier’s Declaration of Compliance (SDOC) and Summary Test Report (STR) templates in an effort to make P25 CAP documentation more useful to end users, as well as reduce the burden on manufacturers and P25 CAP recognized laboratories. DHS will now open a public comment period to review the P25 Compliance Assessment Bulletin (CAB) addressing Baseline Inter-RF Sub-System Interface and Console Sub-System Interface Interoperability Testing Requirements, as well as the latest version of the SDOC template.
