DHS S&T 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 Conformance Testing Requirements, as well as the latest version of the SDOC template. The STR template is available by request to P25CAP@hq.dhs.gov.
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.
DHS S&T has directed Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) to implement a synthesis study to identify and summarize existing body worn cameras (BWC)-related research, specifically that which involves law enforcement personnel perceptions of an incident/event to compare with data/video acquired from BWC devices.
The DHS Science and Technology Directorate conducted an experiment in the greater Boston, Massachusetts, area to determine the effectiveness of two different commercially available communication systems, the Mutualink communications system and the datacasting system. Datacasting is a project sponsored by DHS S&T and is currently not certified by JITC, but meets the other criteria of Public Law 114-120 2015 (U.S. Congress, 2015). This report describes the details of this experiment and discusses the results of use of these systems by more than three DHS components.
