MESA (Mobile Broadband for Emergency and Safety Applications) is a world-wide partnership project between ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) and TIA (Telecommunications Industry Association). Its purpose is to produce globally applicable technical specifications for digital mobile broadband technology, aimed at the sectors of public safety and disaster relief.

MESA started in May 2000 under the name Public Safety Partnership Project. The Partnership Agreement for the project was modified and ratified in January 2001 in the City of Mesa, Arizona. The PSPP was given the name “Project MESA” in recognition of the city where the partnership agreement was finalized.

The purpose of MESA is to collect user requirements and elaborate joint specifications that define applications for mobile broadband technology to be deployed in support of law enforcement, international crime and terror investigations, intelligence, emergency and medical services, fire fighting, civil and homeland defense, and disaster response.
