The satellite industry has long had close ties with the public safety community, supplying connectivity to life-saving emergency communications and restoring services to ensure continuity of operations. The public safety community is eagerly looking forward to the next generation of capabilities being brought to market by the communications industry. At the same time, the U.S. government is also creating and implementing several policies and programs, including FirstNet, that will shape the environment into which new capabilities will be introduced. This panel will examine the current and future network and policy landscapes for public safety satellite communications. How are satellite communications capabilities being leveraged by public safety users? How will government policies and practices impact the introduction of new services for the public safety community?
