Framework for Next Generation 911


Deployment (PS Docket No. 10-255)



The Commission will consider a Notice
of Proposed Rulemaking to accelerate the development
and deployment of Next Generation 911 (NG911)
technology to improve public safety by enabling the
public to send text, photos, videos, and data
communications to 911 Public Safety Answering
Points (PSAPs) and enhancing the information
available to PSAPs and first responders for assessing
and responding to emergencies.


The Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau will


present a white paper on the use of deployable aerial


communications architecture to facilitate the ability of
first responders to communicate with each other and
consumers to reach first responders in the wake of
natural and manmade disasters, even in situations
where there is severe damage to terrestrial
communications infrastructure. The report will make
recommendations regarding next steps the FCC should
consider to promote the development and use of
deployable aerial communications architecture.
