Public Safety and Interoperability Platform to be established at uRegina

June 16, 2015

The University of Regina has received $2.3 M in funding from Western Economic Diversification to establish the Public Safety Interoperability Platform (PSIP). The funding will be used to acquire equipment that will help improve public safety and emergency response across Canada. “We want to help emergency responders talk to and share critical information with each other, allowing them to make informed decisions that complement their existing response processes,” said Yasser Morgan, Principal Researcher at uRegina’s Bridging Research and Interoperability Collaboration (BRIC). Moreover, the PSIP will provide a test-bed for small and medium-sized enterprises to test new technologies for the public safety wireless broadband market. uRegina News Release
