ISCO and U.S. Department of Homeland Security to Demonstrate Breakthrough Interoperability Technology Being Used in D.C. Pilot Project
ISCO International (AMEX: ISO), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate and the District of Columbia's Office of the Chief Technology Officer, will demonstrate breakthrough, new Radio Over Wireless Broadband (ROW-B) technology tomorrow here. Currently being piloted within the District's emergency response community, ROW-B connects existing wireless radio systems with advanced broadband technologies, such as cell, laptops and smart phones, saving critical response time.
During July-August 2008, the ROW-B pilot project is using the same technology to connect the District's existing land mobile radio system with broadband devices. In addition to the interoperability component, the technology provides users with clearly displayed geographic information on the location of other vehicles, equipment, and responders - with the ultimate goal of improving response and providing effective information sharing.
