... Three research areas identified as being of general interest to the AGILE program reflect a focus on both data and voice interoperability: 1 • Information sharing -- Address technological and policy obstacles to enable effective and efficient, on-demand sharing of database informa tion in a regional area; 1National Institute of Justice, "Communications Interoperability and Information Sharing Technologies (AGILE R&D) Program Solicitation," Washington, D.C., June 2001, p.

... requirement for interoperable communications. The definition of public safety wireless communications interoperability developed by the NTFI and refined by SAFECOM, a program of the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS's)

... 5Summit on Interoperable Communications for Public Safety, "Briefing Book of Public Safety Related Groups and Programs on Interoperable Communications and Information Sharing," NIST, Gaithersburg, Md., June 26-27, 2003, 85 pages. The list in the briefing book is the basis for the estimation that more than 60 programs are involved in various aspects of interoperability.

... SAFECOM has developed a number of tools and documents for public safety officials, including the Interoperability Continuum framework for addressing critical wireless interoperability elements; the Statewide Communications Interoperability Planning (SCIP) methodology; grant guidance, which includes guidelines for implementing a wireless communication system; and, in conjunction with the NIJ, a statement of requirements (SoR)
From page 155...
... The NTFI identified a number of state and regional wireless voice communications interoperability efforts, including the Capital Wireless Integrated Network (CapWIN) , which is a partnership between the state of Maryland, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the District of Columbia to develop an interoperable first responder data communication and information sharing network; the state of South Dakota radio system, which includes everything from the wireless infrastructure to radios used in state-wide communications; and the state of Indiana radio system (Hoosier Safe-T)

... and the derivative DHS National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) are intended as data reference models for the exchange of information within the justice and public safety communities.10 Overarching efforts such as the Federal Enterprise Architecture and the e-Authentication e-Gov program also address information sharing and data exchange at the federal level.11 Industry-led efforts at data communications interoperability include the IEEE 1512 Standards Program, oriented to transportation incident management, and the IEEE 1451 Program for Sensor Integration Standards.12 International efforts that span the government, private, and opensource communities include the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards Emergency Management Technical Committee, developers of the Common Alerting Protocol and the Emergency Data Exchange Language; and the Open GIS Consortium, creators of Geospatial Markup Language and of the Web Map Service and Web Feature Service specifications, among others.
