Abstract: In the present work we propose an intelligence C3I concept by integrating public safety radio communication networks and digital television (DTV). Transparent operation achieved through internet protocol (IP) interfaces. Terrestrial DTV will be used as an alternative intelligence communications path that will be activated during major crisis and emergencies where system unavailability occurs. Decision support systems will take over to coordinate, command and control agencies in the public sector. The advantageous property of the proposed architecture is the autonomous, robust and reliable operation of the infrastructures regardless their operations in a stand-alone capacity or as integral part of a greater and transparent security/ intelligence network. The proposed network architecture can be used as a means to countermeasure against crisis (terrorist attacks, physical disasters, etc.).

Keywords: digital television; DTV; command control; C3I; information systems.
