The First Conference of the SALUS project was held on 26th November in Paris, France, as part of the autumn conference of Public Safety Communications Europe (PSCE).
Entitled “End-User Needs Towards Future PPDR Systems”, the SALUS Conference discussed in length the future communication demands from the public protection and disaster relief sector in order to achieve their missions. The aims and purpose of SALUS project was presented at the beginning of the Conference by SALUS project coordinator Hugo Marques. Subsequently, a series of speakers took the floor to present various roadmaps for the future of PPDR communications presenting the potential role of LTE and the evolution of TETRAPOL and TETRA technologies. Due to a wide range of participants, the Conference attendees also gained vital insight into the viewpoints of the industry, standards bodies, researchers and end-users.
The Conference was attended by over 60 people, each of which represented a unique and interesting angle on PPDR communications. The list of speakers and the presented material can be obtained here.
