Abstract: Reconfigurable Radio Systems (RRS) is a subject which is becoming more and more interesting in that represents an affordable and effective solution to integrate the applications for first responders on Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR). These End Users are more and more involved in operations of protection to people environment and properties and they address a large number of threats both natural and man-made, acts of terrorism, technological, radiological or environmental accidents. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have always played an important role in the Public Safety domain. The capability of exchanging information (e.g., voice or data), in particular group calls and situation related data with the required level of security is essential to improve the coordination of Public Safety officers during an emergency crisis and improve their situational awareness. In this paper we focus on the target of interoperability and broadband connectivity in Europe, which are currently the main concerns by Public Safety organizations. The paper explains the specific operational conditions and the related main features, the reasons to adopt reconfigurable architectures and the level to apply reconfiguration on network components as well and, finally the structure and components of an applicable Business Model is proposed.
