P25 terminology can vary among manufacturers, which can be confusing and misleading. This short guide explains the different terms along with the entities involved.
S&T developed certification marks to underscore the process leading to the identification of P25 CAP compliant radios. Only properly certified recognized laboratories and accrediting bodies are entitled to use the P25 CAP certification mark upon execution of a licensing agreement with DHS.
First responders are often in critical situations where a hands-free voice interface solution could enhance their situational awareness and help ensure their safety. As part of its mission to support the identification and integration of existing and emerging technologies, the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) has partnered with the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) to develop potential Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) technology solutions.
To guide industry in development, design, test and integration of responder technologies, DHS S&T has created the NGFR Integration Handbook, which outlines a “plug-and-play,” standards-based environment that enables commercially-developed technologies to integrate with existing first responder infrastructure.
