Radio Interoperability In a Box
By James Careless
Manportable system allows emergency personnel with disparate communications systems to connect.
First responders from a number of organizations are now equipped with technology that allows them to coordinate their actions in an emergency using an interface that facilitates communications between incompatible devices. The interface enables one telephone and five different radio networks to interconnect by plugging in a telephone or radio handset from each network. The small, lightweight unit has been tested by the U.S. Air Force and currently is in use by the National Guard and several law enforcement groups.
For decades, interoperable communications have been a documented public safety problem. Following 9/11, this communications nightmare was brought to the forefront. Fortunately, the combination of federal funding and new technology availed many affordable solutions for first responders. This article provides an overview that can be deployed by any discipline (Fire, Law Enforcement and EMS).
Army disaster units achieve interoperable communications
The Army National Guard’s Civil Support Teams have deployed Communications-Applied Technology’s Incident Commanders Radio Interface (ICRI) to communicate with first-responder agencies.
