Around 20 lakh fishermen are involved in fishing across the state of Kerala and Tamilnadu alone. Most of them Travel 150 to 200 nautical miles deep into the see and depending mainly on mobile communication during emergency times. Though some of the boats are equipped with VHF sets they only can cover a maximum distance of about 60 nautical miles. Also, VHF Walkie talkies require costly VHF towers, which generally becomes non-functional after some time due to poor maintenance. Cellular networks are restricted to only 12 Nautical miles offshore. Hence rescue of stranded fishermen, whenever there are changes in weather conditions or when disasters like cyclone Ockhi occurs are difficult....
