The National RAYNET-UK Committee of Management will come together at a meeting in Staffordshire this Saturday. On the agenda will be the pressing issue of getting the membership website back on line, work for which has already started.
Don has put out his usual call for contributions to next months RAY~Link, if these can be sent directly to him by email don.g3yqo @ gmail.com before the 18th July, please.
Please note that all @raynet-uk.net email addresses are currently unavailable.
This also includes Registrations and BPSS. Please do not attempt to send any forms to these departments via the @raynet-uk.net email addresses as the forms will not reach the teams. Please send any forms via mail; the addresses can be found on the REG-01 form for Registrations and the BPSS Checklist for BPSS applications. The teams are currently unable to process any applications and will hold on to any applications until the present issues have been resolved. Talk through permits are also affected, along with RAYNET News.
As you are aware, yesterday the RAYNET-UK website detected a threat to its systems. The threat has now been confirmed and has resulted in the RAYNET-UK website having to be temporarily closed down. This will affect @raynet-uk.net email addresses; RAYNET News; Registrations & BPSS. Although the electronic Registrations & BPSS systems are not working, you are still able to send in postal documentation but will not be processed until systems are back online. Thank you for your patience with this matter while a solution is sought.
The SALUS project, running since September 2013, culminated last June. To celebrate the successes of the project and showcase the technologies developed within SALUS, the SALUS final validation event was held in June in Kuopio, Finland.
Throughout its three-year lifespan, the SALUS project aimed to design, implement and evaluate a next-generation communications network concept for public protection and disaster relief (PPDR) agencies. The network aims to enhance security, privacy, seamless mobility, as well as reliability support for mission-critical professional mobile radio (PMR) voice and broadband data services.
As such SALUS developed key technologies to enhance communications. These were introduced and presented during the final event.
The demonstrations focused on different scenarios, including locating emergency service teams, giving guidance and instructions to first responders remotely via a command-and-control center application, locating indoors using Wi-Fi radio signals, monitoring the safety of first responders in real time, and communicating using different technologies — Wi-Fi, TETRA and Tetrapol — simultaneously.
