Narrowband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks and user radio equipment have been the cornerstone of mobile communications for First Responders for decades. The trend from traditional analog to more robust wireless broadband networks in recent years has improved the overall accessibility but questions remain on whether the new networks can provide all the required capabilities First Responders need to do their job.

Increasing demand for bandwidth intensive applications such as video, advanced mapping and analytics, alongside critical voice communications has been driving adoption of broadband LTE cellular networks, such as FirstNet.

Join our panel of industry experts for this insightful 60-minute webinar as they discuss the critical differences between LMR networks and LTE networking, how these technologies can successfully co-exist, and explore the future of critical communications for First Responders.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Current and future industry trends for LTE and LMR technologies
  • Challenges and obstacles with the convergence of technologies
  • Real-life examples of successful hybrid communication strategies for First Responders
  • Recommendations for future proofing your agency; adoption of new technologies and how to bridge the gap

August 22, 2011  | 

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has introduced a pair of mobile apps for Android and Windows 7 that provide information about firearms types and nomenclature.

In addition to the new apps, the ATF also updated its app available for Apple iPhone. The app was developed in cooperation with NIC, Inc.

With the app, users can also learn about ATF history and areas of expertise, find their local ATF field offic, and sign up for e-mail updates on the latest ATF-related news.

"ATF is committed to making its mobile presence one that proves both educational to the general public and useful to our industry and law enforcement partners," said Scot Thomasson, chief of the ATF's public affairs division. "The iOS update along with the Android and Windows Phone 7 versions are important steps toward that goal."

Version 1.12 of the ATF iPhone/iPod app is currently available for download on iTunes.

The Android version is now available in the Android Marketplace, and the Windows Phone 7 Version can be found at the Windows Mobile 7 Marketplace.

Great app! For the professional and the novice, a good teaching tool and applicable to teaching someone about the nomenclature of the firearm components.

Thanks!

Too bad they didn't include the California state law so LEO's in Cali can figure out what an Assault Weapon is. I'm a former USCG Tactical Officer and built a legal AR15. I was stopped while hunting at Fort Hunter Liggett this last weekend for having an illegal Assault Weapon. I politely explained my position and why the rifle wasn't illegal. I got the FHL game warden to admit that he didn't know the law and that he would have to ask a state game warden the next day. I met with both the following day and explained why my rifle was legal (it had a monsterman grip instead of a pistol grip, muzzle brake instead of a flash suppressor, fixed stock instead of a collapsible stock, but it didn't have a "bullet button" mag release. The state game warden who was up on the laws declared my rifle was legal. The FHL game warden said that this whole exercise was for my safety, like my rifle was suddenly going to turn on me and hurt me because it didn't have a bullet button.

What is sad about the account at Fort Hunter Ligget is that even if you had a registered w/the DOJ legal AR you would not be able to explain your way out of the several features "not allowed combination." What then? You are out your hunting money and time because you have your firearm sitting in someone's lock-up waiting to hear that you are okay to hunt with your "vicious firearm." I guess if I ever go hunting with my registered rifle, I will need to make sure I carry a copy of my DOJ paperwork. I have also hunted FHL, great area and unfortunate they did not treat you a little better.
