GCN : November 2012
28 GCN NOVEMBER 2012 • GCN.COM become identified as police of- ficers," he added. GPS features in the phones let command centers track in- dividual officers, improving situational awareness and also helping to avoid the embar- rassing situation of undercover police watching each other be- cause of suspicious behavior. Because police did not have to radio their location and describe events that could be photographed, "the amount of radio traffic was reduced sig- nificantly," McFadden said. While not perfect, the first live test of a dedicated public safety LTE network resulted in few problems and has whet the departments' appetites, Moushon said. "There are go- ing to be so many possibilities coming out of this as the tech- nology matures," he predicted. "This showed us it is possible and it is coming." • CASE STUDY Federal technology planners are considering a "game changing approach" to upgrading federal tactical networks by using emerg- ing commercial and public safety networks on a subscription basis. "Use of a subscription model reduces the ownership and operating costs by sharing the network ownership costs across a wider user base," the Department of Homeland Security said in announcing a program this summer for developing prototype networks. The DHS Science and Technology Directorate is soliciting proposals from government, private sector and academic research and development facilities for prototype public safety networks. It expects to award up to $8 million to fund developing and testing. The Next Generation Tactical Wireless Broadband program envi- sions a seamless national network of interoperable commercial and public systems that can be lever- aged by federal, state and local public safety agencies across the country, including DHS. The technical goals of the DHS effort include the use of land mobile radio over broadband to demonstrate whether current industry solutions can provide low-delay and high-availability services for law enforcement. The department wants to dem- onstrate the delivery of broadband data and video services to tactical users in the field. Services to be provided include biometric checks, database queries, image and file transfer, location-based services and streaming video. "The traditional model of owning and operating multiple private TACCOM systems carries a multi-billion dollar price tag across the department," DHS said. "This model must give way to a 'game changing approach' that allows for cost sharing across a broader user base targeting reduced capital invest- ment and lifecycle costs by leveraging networks owned by others." DHS said it will fund R&D to create a proof-of-concept model for systems supporting each of the four technical goals, which will be tested in government labs. Those that pass muster will go on to field demonstrations with DHS users. -- William Jackson Statement of Ownership, Management and Circulation 1. Title of Publication: Government Computer News 2.
