What is Mission Critical Technologies?

Communications Technologies

Communications tech is one of the 4 key pillars of MCT. PPDR organisations have shifted the discussion away from the well-known reliability of PMR technologies towards are more open and proactive discussion about how they can benefit from the immense capabilities that broadband technologies can offer. MCT will focus on:

• Public Safety LTE investment

• The development of PMR networks alongside broadband technology

• The role of commercial operators

• Addressing in-building challenges

Unmanned and automated technologies

A rapidly developing area of interest for PPDR has been unmanned and automated tech. The growing number of use cases and case studies for police and fire departments has led to the need for a platform to discuss these technologies as part of a PPDR's technological roadmap:

• The growing demand for drones in public safety

• How robotics can contribute to operationaleffectiveness

• How can automated robotics assist public safety operations?

• Dissecting the new use cases

Wearable Technology

Broadband has developed in the PPDR community as a key enabler, fostering the research and investment into wearable technologies, allowing organisations to have a clearer picture of where the workforces are; what situation they are in; supply visual feedback, measure biometrics and many more use cases. The third pillar of MCT will discuss:

• New data storage solutions

• Remote location and dispatch solutions

• Incorporating the ‘Safe City’ element intoSmart City directives

• Addressing cyber security

• Analytics and algorithms in predictive policing

Command and Control Solutions

With new streams of data coming back from frontline officers, the control centres of PPDR organisations need to evolve to take advantage. Analytics software, data storage, cyber security and many other areas have come to fore within the control room. Our fourth pillar will discuss:

• The use and need of companion devices

• The use cases and drivers behind live videostreaming

• Equipping the connected front-line responder

• How are biometric solutions being implemented into the front-line operative?

• How will BWV evolve to enhance public safety operations?
