Brief History
  • Project MESA is a transatlantic public safety
    partnership between ETSI (Europe) and TIA (N.
    America) that represents the first international
    initiative to involve users and organizations
    from the Public Protection, Disaster Response and
    Civil Defence sectors
  • In May 2000 ETSI and TIA signed in Washington DC
    an agreement (the PPA - Partnership Project
    Agreement) to work collaboratively by providing a
    forum in which the key players can contribute
    actively to the elaboration of MESA
    specifications
  • In January 2001 the current partnership agreement
    was ratified in the City of Mesa (Arizona)
  • Projects name given in recognition of the
    signature city
  • MESA Mobility for Emergency and Safety
    Applications
  • Project MESA also supports the ITU in its
    worldwide effort to harmonize PPDR communications
    as documented in ITU-R Report M.2033

MESA Objectives
  • MESA aims at producing globally applicable
    technical specifications for digital mobile
    broadband technology, aimed initially at the
    sectors of public safety and disaster response
    allowing a coordination of regional/international
    responses to emergencies, disasters, monitoring
    day-by-day and planned events services

5
Members Activities
  • Project MESA membership currently comprises about
    100 representatives
  • national public safety organizations
  • communications equipment users
  • communications industry
  • research organizations
  • Academia
  • Observers from Canada (TSACC) and Korea (TTA)
  • Full affiliation list http//www.projectmesa.org/
    info/MESApeople.htm
  • Any interested party from around the globe can
    actively participate in the Project MESA
    specification development process
  • ETSI and TIA support the administrative needs
    while the technical work required to develop the
    Project MESA specifications is performed by
    members
  • Members meet every 6 months (alternating between
    European and North American venues) to coordinate
    program activities and to review project
    documents for approval
  • Between the meetings, members coordinate
    specification development and other activities
    primarily during phone conferences and through
    e-mail

Statement of user Requirements (SoR)
  • Developed within the user-focused Service
    Specification Group Services and Applications
    (SSG-SA) of MESA and approved by the Project MESA
    Steering Committee (SC) in 2002
  • Intended to describe and define functional and
    operational user requirements, capabilities,
    applications and scenarios that involve broadband
    air interface data rates
  • documents the details of PPDR scenarios,
    describing the types of information that are
    routinely required to support PPDR activities
  • technology needs within Public Protection
    Disaster Relief (PPDR) discipline
  • Emphasis on applications identified by
    users/agencies as key requirements, but which
    current applied technology may not fully deliver
