Workshop/Webinar on Deployable Aerial Communications Architecture

October 31, 2011, 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM EDT
Commission Meeting Room (TW-C305), 445 12th Street SW, Washington, DC 20554

This workshop and webinar covered the recent PSHSB White Paper entitled, "The Role of Deployable Aerial Communications Architecture in Emergency Communications and Recommended Next Steps."

The first panel focused on how enabling the use of deployable aerial communications architecture (DACA) can help ensure that critical communications are available within the first few hours after a catastrophic event for a period of between 72 and 96 hours. The second panel addressed the types of technologies that are available for DACA and how they can serve the need for immediate communications after a major disaster, when terrestrial communications may not be available. The final panel considered technical issues associated with the deployment of DACA for emergency communications, including interference concerns.
