The Motorola Award for Public Safety Technology to be given at CATAAlliance's Innovation Awards Gala

OTTAWA, March 14 2012 - CATAAlliance, Canada's largest high-technology trade association announced that nominations are now open for the Outstanding Product Achievement Award recognizing excellence in Public Safety Technology. The Award is named after one of the world's leading communications firms, Motorola.

The Award will be presented to a Canadian organization for an outstanding technology engineering development which has resulted in the production of a world-class Public Safety product or family of products. The product will have proven itself in operation and its design and market success will have enhanced Canada's international reputation for innovation and excellence.

The market for security technologies is large, global and growing - with spending predicted to accelerate by 30 per cent annually to reach US $5.7 billion by 2014, according to projections based on data from IMS Research and Infonetics Research.

Finalists and award recipients will be chosen by a selection committee comprising experts drawn from the CATAAlliance Governing Council, First Responder Organizations and Motorola Canada.

According to CATAAlliance President, John Reid, "Motorola continues to demonstrate its dedication to technology excellence and leadership through its support of recognition programs, research and advocacy. Awards and related programs create role models and also help to reinforce the power of new technologies in stimulating Canada's business growth and productivity. They are an important part of building Canada's Innovation Nation. We're proud to announce that the Public Safety Technology Award will be named in Motorola's honour and congratulate them on their corporate citizenship."
