Vision and Mission

Public Safety Technology Alliance


The Public Safety Technology Alliance (PSTA) vision is to promote the use and adoption of open industry standards for technologies that impact the public safety user community. With leaders from every corner of the public safety, telecommunications and technology sectors, we will collectively identify and select best in class open standards and open standard APIs. By maintaining open source APIs and open application frameworks and focusing on security with standards compliant single sign-on initiatives, technology will be interoperable, creating greater choice and innovation for public safety.


Our mission is to accelerate the conformance of technology that is both open and standards compliant to ensure public safety has a safe, secure and interoperable framework for the next generation of communications tools by guiding the implementation and testing of technical specifications requirements for applications, handsets, connected devices, cloud applications and storage that will be used by the first responder community.
