ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is seeking nominations and expressions of interest for membership on the Project 25 Compliance Assessment Program Advisory Panel (P25 CAP AP). The activities of the P25 CAP AP are expected to commence in fall 2015. P25 is a standard which enables interoperability among digital two-way SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47505 land mobile radio communications products created by and for public safety professionals. P25 CAP is a formal, independent process, created by DHS and operated in collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), for ensuring that communications equipment that is declared by the supplier to be P25 compliant, in fact, is tested against the standards with publicly published results. The P25 CAP AP would provide a resource by which DHS could gain insight into the collective interest of organizations that procure P25compliant equipment and a resource in DHS’s continuing to establish the policies of the P25 CAP along with assisting the DHS Office for Interoperability and Compatibility (OIC) in the administration of the Program. DATES: All responses must be received within 30 days from the date of this notice at the address listed below. ADDRESSES: Expressions of interest and nominations should be submitted to SandTFRG@hq.dhs.gov. • Instructions: All submissions received must include the words ‘‘Department of Homeland Security’’ and DHS–2015–0041, the docket number for this action. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Merrill, Director, Office for Interoperability and Compatibility, Science and Technology Directorate, Department of Homeland Security, 202– 254–5604 (O), John.Merrill@hq.dhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background TIA–102/Project 25 (P25) is a standards development process for the design, manufacture, and evaluation of interoperable digital two-way land mobile radio communications products created by and for public safety professionals. The goal of P25 is to specify formal standards for interfaces and features between the various components of a land mobile radio system commonly used by public safety agencies in portable handheld and mobile vehicle-mounted devices. The P25 standard enables interoperability among different suppliers’ products. P25 CAP was developed by DHS and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to test equipment designed to comply with P25 standards. The program provides public safety agencies with evidence that the communications equipment they are purchasing is tested against and complies with the P25 standards for performance, conformance, and interoperability.
