Catalyst’s Patent Application will help First Responder Critical Radio Communications

Today at the APCO Show in Florida we announced that we have a patent pending for our invention of a system to allow an Incident Commander to coordinate personnel from disparate units that are using incompatible and different communication devices.

Our patent application describes an innovative process for combining field deployable dispatch and control of radio systems with various control capabilities of radio communications protocols. We believe that this innovative intellectual property will combine the benefits Catalyst technology with standards based radio communications protocols in a way that will uniquely improve communications between First Responders during an Incident.

The technology is particularly powerful as it includes innovative methods for determining when a target communications device is idle or busy and, if busy, managing the audio to prevent the loss of syllables.
