Airbus DS Communications program helps launch to next-gen 9-1-1 system

Airbus DS Communications, a leading provider of public safety communications, is devoting new support and resources to help public safety answering points (PSAPs), with up to 10 call-taking positions, transition to Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) with its new program, “Safety Has No Size,” the company said.

As part of the program, Airbus DS Communications is launching an advisory council to help guide new initiatives and has named PSAP champions to serve as advocates and provide educational material to user communities.

Airbus DS Communications´ new advisory council will include public safety professionals across the country from public safety agencies with 10 or fewer call-taking positions. The council will provide guidance and recommendations on the needs of these public safety agencies.

Airbus is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2016, it generated revenues of EUR 67 billion and employed a workforce of around 134,000.
