Federal Engineering completed four phases of the project. The tasks tackled in those phases included:
• Interviewed users to determine their needs
• Assessed the current radio networks and supporting infrastructures
• Analyzed radio traffic and determined future channel capacity requirements
• Developed alternatives and recommendations to replace current radio systems
• Provided technical and project management support during system procurement
• Assisted with complex contract negotiations with the vendor
The implementation phase services encompass the planning and design reviews necessary for successful implementation of the Project 25 (P25) Phase 2 radio system and subsystems being procured by the city under the 800 MHz public-safety radio replacement project, said Michelle Geddes, program manager for the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management.
Federal Engineering’s tasks begin with a detailed design review of the system and end with the completion of all cutover activities. The consultant will provide project management, assist with risk management, maintain change control, assist with all design-related activities, support the factory order process, provide site inspections and facilitate the field implementation process. The company will also support developing policies/procedures for the cutover and ongoing operations of the system recommending priorities, talkgroup parameters and configurations.
