2012 NPSTC Atkinson Technical Award

June 20, 20112

The National Public Safety Telecommunications Council recently announced the establishment of the Atkinson Technical Award in honor of ITS senior engineer David (DJ) Atkinson, whose April 2012 death in a tragic accident was a great loss to NTIA and the public safety community. DJ's work on Public Safety Audio Quality is credited by many firefighters with saving lives on the fireground. Read the  NTIA blog posting about the award.
