DALLAS — Like many other entities trying to upgrade security after the 2001 terrorist attacks, officials at Dallas Love Field Airport faced a daunting problem: Various agencies used communications equipment that could not let them talk to one another.
"We faced the same problems that all emergency responders have had throughout the years, and that's the inability of personnel from different agencies and jurisdictions to communicate," said Terry Mitchell, Dallas assistant director of aviation. "They couldn't communicate because they had disparate radio systems on different frequencies."
