TCS Selected by DHS to Perform Second Phase of Research on Improving Geo-Targeting Accuracy for Wireless Emergency Alerts - 11/13/2015
TCS today announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate will sponsor TCS for the second phase of research, "Constructing Algorithms that Utilize RF Cell Site Propagation Footprints for Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA)." The research focuses on using area footprints associated with radio frequency (RF) coverage to improve geo-targeting granularity and accuracy for delivery of WEA messages. TCS, which performed the first phase of this study over six months in 2014, is now partnering with ClearTalk Wireless to validate the phase-one findings in a real-world carrier environment.
