Raytheon and UCLA To Establish Center for Public Safety Network Systems

February 03, 2011  | 

The Raytheon Co. has entered a strategic partnership with the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to establish the UCLA Center for Public Safety Network Systems.

Raytheon has initially committed $1 million over three years to the UCLA Institute for Technology Advancement (ITA) of the engineering school to conduct research on public safety networks.

"UCLA is a long-standing world leader in radio communications networking technology," according to Daniel Crowley, president of Raytheon Network Centric Systems. "The UCLA Center for Public Safety Network Systems will be easily accessible from our just-announced Raytheon Public Safety Regional Technology Center opening in Los Angeles County this summer and will further underscore our continuing commitment to the region and public safety market."

The mission of the UCLA-ITA Public Safety Network Systems Center is to bring together academia, industry and public safety agencies to provide technical leadership, a collaborative forum for research, and to establish standards for public safety networks.

The center will operate to benefit the public safety agencies and guide the public safety community in the evolution of technologies and standards. Any public or private organization that meets the membership requirements to be established by UCLA will be welcome to join the center.
