Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Interoperability and overcrowding of the emergency band channels have led to mixed communication in crisis situations. Despite FCC regulations and policies, the problem has persisted and is being addressed more critically since September 11th and Hurricane Katrina. The goal of this MQP is to begin work on a data collection and processing tool that will allow for emergency bands to be monitored and channel bandwidth usage to be calculated. Data gathered and the code used can also be used in conjuction with further WPI projects in this area.
