Project Overview: The Science and Technology Directorate Command, Control and Interoperability Division (CID) is demonstrating a prototype for the first-ever, portable multi-band radio (MBR), which will allow emergency responders-police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical service personnel-to communicate with partner agencies, regardless of the radio band in which they operate. Similar in size and weight to existing portable radios, the MBR will provide emergency responders with cutting-edge communications capabilities. CID plans to pilot this radio with emergency responder agencies in 2009. This project is part of the Office for Interoperability and Compatibility within CID.
