Digital demonstration project to enhance Homeland Security

A communications system that sends emergency messages at high-speed to desktop personal computers via NJN Public Television’s digital broadcast signal has been demonstrated at the State Office of Emergency Management at New Jersey State Police headquarters in West Trenton.
NJN, in partnership with the State of New Jersey Office of Emergency Management (OEM), have developed a demonstration project to send emergency management data to OEM sites located within the Emergency Planning Zone (EPZ) around the Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station. OEM have designated Ocean County and Lacey Township Emergency Operation Centers as the two participating sites. The project will demonstrate the potential for very quick, efficient and robust distribution of emergency information to multiple receiving devices using NJN’s digital television (DTV) airwaves.
“Communications via NJN’s digital television system is yet another tool with great potential to add to New Jersey’s homeland security preparedness efforts and protect citizens in times of an emergency,” said Governor James E. McGreevey. “This cutting-edge technology holds the promise to allow emergency personnel to respond to an incident even more rapidly.”
