David is board member of PSCE and coordinator of project BroadWay, BroadWay is a key activity that will jointly procure pre-commercial solutions to enable mobile broadband for public safety practitioners, providing them with operational mobility; allowing the ability to carry out their important life saving and crime fighting roles, whenever they are in Europe, and whenever they need to. David’s experience in Public Safety Communications dates back to the late 1990’s where involvement in research projects lead to the first demonstrations of medical telemetry and multimedia over the first implementations of circuit switched TETRA. David was an active contributor to the TETRA standards as ETSI special task force expert on many occasions covering aspects of coding, modulation, RF extension down to VHF and definition of the Multimedia Exchange layer (MEX) layer.

In recent years his research has led to interest in the wider deployment aspects of mobile networks with a key focus towards solving problems across the layers of interoperability including associated requirements for security; including the major problem of moving beyond technological interoperability, through solving problems of informational interoperability, through to aligned operations, strategy and changing EU Legislation.
