The value of good communication between emergency
responders can’t be understated; in many cases it’s a matter of
life and death.
University of Regina researchers, led by Dr. Yasser Morgan, are
developing technologies to help improve this critical
communication. Their latest project, the Public Safety
Interoperability Platform (PSIP), will produce an advanced radio
network for public safety agencies to plug into. This platform will
serve as the linking mechanism between existing communications
systems, which are often incompatible.
The PSIP will also provide a test-bed for regional small and
medium-sized enterprises where researchers can develop novel
technologies for the public safety wireless broadband market.
This will help to reduce research time and development
costs for these businesses, as well as provide independent
certification allowing them to commercialize their
The PSIP project is part of the University's Bridging
Research and Interoperability Collaboration initiative
and is a reflection of the University of Regina’s
commitment to research that has a meaningful
impact at home and beyond.
