Reston, Va.-based analyst firm INPUT announced that the state and local public-safety interoperable communications marketplace will grow to $5.5 billion by 2012, including $3.4 billion from federal-funding sources. However, while the Public-Safety Interoperable Communications grant program, administered by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, will provide nearly $1 billion for agencies and jurisdictions to improve public-safety communications, INPUT said limited gains would be made because of an absence of common standards and leadership from the federal government.
