Developing a Public Safety Radio Data Set



Texas A&M University was awarded more than $900,000 for the Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program: Public Safety Radio Data Grant. Texas A&M University will collect Land Mobile Radio data from a diverse set of public safety organizations (PSO) across the nation to perform research and analysis toward understanding LMR usage implications for transition to LTE. The project team will collect data from ten PSOs throughout the US as well as related geographical information such as weather and event data to facilitate rich data research and analysis and characterize LMR usage and prepare for the transition to LTE.
