The Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) Division of NIST – the National Institute of Standards and Technology – is the primary federal laboratory conducting research, development, testing, and evaluation for public safety communications technologies. It is housed within the Communications Technology Laboratory (CTL) at NIST. PSCR hosts an Annual Public Safety Broadband Stakeholder Meeting that brings together representatives from public safety, federal agencies, industry, and academia. Participants hear from PSCR engineers and researchers about testing updates, upcoming R&D efforts, and opportunities to get involved, as well as industry leaders and public safety partners on cutting-edge technology findings, features, and functionalities. The Annual Stakeholder Meeting enables PSCR to receive direct input, guidance, and feedback from their diverse stakeholder community.
This summer, PSCR hosted its Annual Stakeholder Meeting in-person for the first time in three years from June 7-9 in San Diego, California. Catalyst Communications Technologies President Robin Grier demonstrated how the company’s interoperability solutions supports communications between LTE devices and legacy LMR subscriber units. Grier spoke with IWCE’s Urgent Communications Editor Donny Jackson during the PSCR 2022 Stakeholder Meeting being conducted this week in San Diego.
