The newly published standards will be put into effect almost immediately through a S&T-led research and development effort with PNNL.
The Israel-U.S. BIRD HLS program awarded funding for two collaborative projects to develop advanced homeland security technologies in the areas of multimedia communications systems for first responders and a mid-air conflict management system for manned and unmanned aircraft.
DHS S&T, in partnership with NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme, concluded a four-year project with a final disaster management exercise in North Macedonia.
This report was developed to provide a current look at 5G technological trends, specifically those that will most significantly impact DHS customer components’ missions.
To assess impacts of 5G on the public safety community, OIC-TC tasked the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab (JHU APL) to employ a deep dive approach to investigate specific 5G technologies which will enable information sharing at the incident area “edge” network.
S&T ensures that first responders and DHS can exchange information such as voice, video or data through any medium and that interoperability across agencies is paramount upon transition to broadband communications networks, including FirstNet.
