ISRO device to help rescue fishermen lost in sea
Chennai: A device developed by ISRO, which
can send signals through satellite to a land station conveying
the nature of emergency and location, can help rescue
fishermen if they get lost in the high sea while fishing, a
Coast Guard official said.
"DAT, the device developed by ISRO, would be very useful
to fishermen since it has inbuilt GPS receiver to give
position and time information. In the event of an emergency,
the user can manually activate the transmitter and press a
switch indicating emergency condition to relay the message to
a central station through satellite," IG Commander Coast Guard
Region (East) A Rajasekhar told reporters here.



More than 900 fishermen in the country have received the
device and another one thousand transmitters would be
distributed soon, he said.
