ISSS - "Preparedness through Innovation"

When a national communication system has been chosen, implemented and has proven to function well for all service users, the question of ‘why would there be a need for a Plan B?’ has to be asked.

Indeed, there are many other questions that are pre-cursors to this controversial question of ‘Why?’

  • When would a Plan B become essential?
  • What have other European countries implemented as a ‘Plan B’?
  • Should the decision of protocol and frequency be local or national?
  • Can any of the existing radio communications peripheral infrastructure be utilized?
  • How critical is radio propagation in the decision process?
  • Who should have access to a ‘Plan B’ system and why?

ISSS members have over 30 years experience in design, development, operation and training in tactical military radio, fire department, police & law enforcement and commercial systems from HF to microwave.
