GPS has a long and deep history with the public safety community. In the late 1990s, as mobile phones became more ubiquitous, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rightfully recognized that unlike landline phones which are tied to a physical address, mobile phones can connect to 911 wherever there is wireless coverage. Recognizing the challenge of locating wireless 911 calls, by 2001, the FCC began implementing requirements that wireless providers be able to relay the latitude and longitude of a caller to a 911 call center. Since then, policymakers and public safety have been working to take advantage of location-finding advancements in smartphones (like the now-common presence of GPS in handsets) to increase the speed and accuracy with which 911 can determine a caller's location. Featured speakers will include: Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE), Co-Chair, GPS Caucus Harold W. Martin, Director, National Coordination Office for Space-Based Positioning, Navigation and Timing (invited) David Furth, Deputy Chief, Public Safety & Homeland Security Bureau (invited) Dave Kight, Garmin, Asst. General Consel, Employment & Regulatory Affairs Additional speakers may be announced. Light refreshments will be served.
