Vice President — Public Safety Communications Europe
Coordinator — BroadMap
Dr David Lund is a member of the board of Public Safety Communications Europe (PSCE) Forum.
David is coordinator of project BroadMap, a key activity aiming to define the requirements for procurement of European Interoperable broadband applications/services, networks and devices for PPDR. David is also leading the preparation towards the pre-commercial procurement activity.
David’s experience in public safety communications dates back to the 1990s where involvement in research projects led to demonstrations of medical telemetry and multimedia over the first implementations of circuit switched TETRA, winning the most innovative application award at the 2001 TETRA World Congress. David was an active contributor to the TETRA standards as ETSI special task force expert on many occasions covering aspects of coding, modulation, RF extension down to VHF and definition of the Multimedia Exchange (MEX) layer.
In recent years his research has led to interest in the wider deployment aspects of mobile networks with a key focus towards solving problems across the layers of interoperability – the major problem of moving beyond technological interoperability, through solving problems of informational interoperability, through to aligned operations, strategy and changing European Legislation.
