Anritsu Company Sponsors Third Annual Disaster Management Initiative At Carnegie Mellon University, Silicon Valley

MORGAN HILL, Calif., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Anritsu Company announces it was a sponsor of the third annual Disaster Management Initiative (DMI), held at Carnegie Mellon University, Silicon Valley (CMUSV) on November 4-5 at the university's campus in Moffett Field, CA, in the heart of Silicon Valley. As part of the sponsorship, David Witkowski, senior product manager, Anritsu, led a session that focused on digital radio technologies for public safety, government, and infrastructure users.

This year's two-day invitational workshop showcased technologies that have the potential to improve community resilience in preparation, response and recovery from emergencies of all kinds. Community resilience in the face of an emergency situation, increasingly, depends on survivable access to the Internet. Access to health and banking records stored in the cloud will be essential in an emergency, as well. These issues were addressed during the workshop.

"The DMI has established itself as one of the pre-eminent research efforts focused on applying cutting-edge technology to solve real-world challenges in disaster management and emergency response, such as those currently being encountered in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Anritsu has been, and remains committed to, developing test solutions that sustain and improve the Land Mobile Radio communications systems used by public safety, first responders, military and other government organizations. Our expertise in the testing of these networks supported the overall objectives of this year's workshop and the ongoing efforts of the DMI," said Witkowski.  

Witkowski discussed the proliferation of new digital radio technologies and the challenges they have created to the National Emergency Communications Plan and SAFECOM interoperability vision set forth by the Department of Homeland Security and federal/state agencies. He also offered insight into what must be done to ensure a continuum of communications across levels of government, between law enforcement jurisdictions, and among infrastructure response teams.
