What we stand for

FCS R&D POSITION

  • Government should increase the funding allocated for network and communications-specific, pre-competitive, basic research, while ensuring that existing funding is not diverted for non-research purposes.
  • Government must make long-term communications research a priority.  Public funding needs to be directed to key areas:  universal broadband;  interoperable mobility;  and PPDR related fields including interoperability, security, survivability, and encryption.
