ISRO scientists claim to have developed a device that would warn fishermen about imminent dangers on the sea and communicate back to their family on such issues. The device is also supposed to alert them to the position of the International Maritime Boundary Line, while they are at sea. ISRO’s GPS-device to be called NaVIC GPS system and, once implemented, would certainly boost impoverished fishermen’s livelihood.

The system was developed after the aftermath of cyclone Okhi which claimed the lives of 70 fishermen in Kerala because they couldn’t be updated about the predicted alarming situation. From the senior scientists of ISRO, it has been gathered that NaVIC GPS system will also enable the fishermen to locate a high concentration of fish in the sea. The device will also have a hub for the fishermen to communicate with their family in times of trouble.

There is no mobile network coverage in the deep seas. The gadget that is to be mounted to the device will have a Bluetooth connectivity and through our NaVIC messaging feature, we will gige more information on prospective storms. – Nilesh Desai at the panel discussion organised by Bengaluru Space Expo.
