It seems like a no brainer but the military is still struggling to literally communicate on the same channels. Francis Rose talks with David Kahn, Chief Executive Officer at Covia Labs in this week’s Industry Chatter. Kahn says he first realized there was a problem when he noticed public safety officers using walkie-talkies while responding to an emergency because their radios were not on the same frequency and used differing protocol.
Francis Rose is the host of In Depth, which airs weekdays from 4-7 p.m. on 1500 AM in the Washington, DC metro area and online everywhere. Francis has covered all three branches of the federal government as a broadcast journalist since 1998. He joined Federal News Radio in 2006, and launched In Depth in 2008 as a daily show focused on connecting federal executives to the information they need to do their jobs better.
