Public safety - Application of Software Defined Radio
During emergency situation such as earthquake, tsunami, terrorist attack, public safety officials from different agencies (in some cases, different counties and States) should able to communicate with each other effectively. If they are not able to share the information soon, then millions of lives will be lost. Public safety officials such as police officers, firefighters and doctors cannot always depend on wireless radio communication as their radios are often incompatible. SDR thus helps public safety officials to exchange information among themselves and thus millions of lives can be saved without wasting time.
