Engineering with the UN

Advanced Research was proud to be sponsored by the Office of the Secrertary of Defense (OSD) to support the United Nations in designing a communications infrastructure for humanitarian operations. The team supported the UN High Commisioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Department of Humanitarian Affairs (DHA) in designing and evaluating deployable voice and data communication facilities for worldwide operations.

The team deployed to Croatia and Bosnia in the former Yugoslavia and the former Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan. Different equipment sets were identified for the different situations and environments.
