The article reports on the development of the Project 25 standard whose main objective is to create a set of standards for high-quality interoperable digital radio voice and data communications. It is stated that P25 lets vendors add their own application-layer features given that they do not hinder interoperability. It is also stated that the Compliance Assessment Program (CAP) is planning to have some product information regarding P25 compliance posted online come the end of this year.
