The Department of Homeland Security's science and technology directorate is extending the 30-day comment period for a planned set of testing standards that will allow interoperability for digital land mobile radio systems and standardized LMR components. The agency said Thursday that it will accept comments on a draft compliance bulletin under the Project 25 Compliance Assessment Program through March 31.
DHS S&T will finalize the bulletin after it completes the review and integration of the submitted comments. The initiative intends to help communications equipment firms showcase their products' compliance via tests at authorized laboratories. DHS also noted that it plans to broaden the program's testing scope to add other types of equipment.
