Abstract: Evaluating the operational utility of cross-band repeater technology in enabling wireless voice communications for public safety agencies, this final report details the results of the National Communications Interoperability Assessment (NCIA) study conducted by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL). From January 2001 through February 2002, JHU/APL conducted the NCIA study focusing on the Multiple Agency Radio Interoperability Program (MARIP) TRP-1000 Transportable Intelligent Interconnect System. Focusing on intra- and inter-agency communications and the suitability of the MARIP TRP-1000 for the public safety operational environment, this project considered critical operational issues. Interviewing project participants at the completion of the NCIA study, this report found that NCIA participants considered the MARIP TRP-1000 to be a valuable resource, expanding the capabilities of their agencies to provide technical support. Evaluating the 21 sites that responded to either the Interim or Final Survey, 18 of the 21 sites indicated that they would recommend the MARIP TRP-1000 to another public safety counterpart with no or minimal reservations. After summarizing some of the technical findings learned during the course of the NCIA study, this report concludes that the NCIA study was successful and reflects this organization’s commitment to public safety.
