6 Executive Summary CONFIDENTIAL DMA 911 Radio System The Downriver Mutual Aid (DMA) radio system has been in existence for over 12-years and covers the members’ police and fire departments.The current radio system is a 16 channel Motorola Smartnet II 800 MHz simulcast trunked system. It is a dual mode system with both analog and digital trunked talkgroups. There are four tower sites and one main communications room. The tower sites are located in Flat Rock, Riverview, Ecorse and Taylor. All towers except for Taylor are free of rent and are either owned by DMA or have long-term leases.The type and model number of the subscriber radios are as follows:Portables are Motorola XTS3000 Model H09UCF9PW7BNMobiles are Motorola Astro Spectra Plus D04UJH9SW3AN, W4 and W5sConsolettes are Motorola Astro Spectra Model L04UJH9PW7ANThe current subscriber radio inventory consists of 1,624 units allocated as follows:The current 800 MHz system, procured in 1998, was financed through a $12 million dollar bond issue and ultimately paid for with funds captured by the State of Michigan E-911 telephone surcharge.The telephone charge can capture up to 80-cents per monthly bill on land-line and cellular telephone bills. The current rate is 42-cents per monthly land-line and cellular telephone bill.

7 Executive Summary CONFIDENTIAL Current Project and Financing ObjectivesThe Downriver Mutual Aid has solicited bids to replace its 800 MHz Trunked Radio Communications System with a Cassidian solution, called COR p25 network. This turnkey radio infrastructure system consists of a simulcast system with 4 radio tower sites (Taylor, Ecorse, Flat Rock and Riverview); a main communications room; 16 frequency channels; and 20 dispatch consoles distributed to over 14 locations.The new system, connected by fiberlink and microwave technologies, allows public safety officers the ability to communicate both through voice and data. The backbone infrastructure to the current system is being completely replaced with the newest technology and allows interoperability with the Michigan State Police, and other local, county, and federal agencies.Infrastructure Equipment to be PurchasedCOR p25 Equipment:Console Gateway:Central ControllersRedundant VPgate Software LicensesSoftware PackageEndpoint Licenses5 Channel Gateway Power SuppliesComputersISSI ConnectionsDisplay UnitsSpare PartsRadio ControllersNetwork Timing Equipment:Rack Mount ShelvesGPS Antenna’s and ServersSIP Telephony GatewayNetwork Management System:Professional servicesWorkstationsSystem DesignLaser PrintersEquipment InstallationSolarwinds Network MonitorStagingManager ServerConsole InstallationConsole Operator Positions:Acceptance TestingConsole PackageRouters and SwitchesHeadset/HandsetControl StationsTouchscreen MonitorSoftware LicensesUPS Power Supply
