SHAred RESources (SHARES) High Frequency (HF) Radio Program

The SHAred RESources (SHARES) High Frequency (HF) Radio program provides an additional means for users with a national security and emergency preparedness mission to communicate when landline and cellular communications are unavailable. SHARES members use existing HF radio resources to coordinate and transmit messages needed to perform critical functions, including those areas related to leadership, safety, maintenance of law and order, finance, and public health.

MAPS collaborates with interagency partners, the private sector, public safety groups, professionals, and academia. 

Shared Communication Systems and Infrastructure

Across the United States, public safety organizations continue to recognize the value of building communications networks that support multiple agencies and disciplines. Enhancing communications operability and interoperability remains a top priority for the public safety community. SCSI projects focus on encouraging active resource sharing for organizations with national security, emergency preparedness, and public safety missions.
