Saankhya Labs awarded Rs 96.42 Crore Order to Connect Fishing Vessels with Satellites Communication System

Saankhya Labs awarded Rs 96.42 Crore Order by NSIL to Connect Fishing Vessels with Satellites Communication System

Technology in India is becoming ready to help and shield fishermen all along the country’s expansive coastline. Tejas Networks subsidiary Saankhya Labs has received an order for Rs 96.42 crore from NewSpace India Limited (NSIL) to supply cutting-edge support and communication systems for marine fishing vessels.

This initiative is a major step towards improving India’s maritime security and aiding its fishing communities. It is being carried out in cooperation with NSIL, ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation), and the Department of Fisheries. Saankhya Labs will outfit motorised and mechanised fishing vessels with its locally built satellite terminals, dubbed “Xponders.”

For Indian fisherman, this technical advancement promises to be a revolution in life at sea. Enhanced information access and communication will increase their efficacy and productivity, while the added security features will give them and their families much-needed peace of mind.

The initiative also shows how India’s domestic technology sector is developing. Through innovation and teamwork, the creation of cutting-edge satellite terminals like Xponders not only supports homegrown businesses but also enhances national security.

The launch of this network is a significant step for India’s fishermen and the maritime industry towards a safer, more connected, and profitable future. This programme demonstrates the country’s dedication to using technology to safeguard its borders and improve the lives of its citizens.

Going Beyond Navigation​

These Xponders do more than just help with navigation. They provide a vast network that will

  • Boost security and safety: By giving fishermen access to emergency communication systems, they can react to problems more quickly.
  • Mitigate sea-borne risks: By keeping an eye on vessel movements and spotting possible threats, the network will support national security.
  • Increased awareness: Automatic boundary-crossing sirens will warn fisherman of unlawful zones, assuring regulatory compliance.
  • Weather intelligence: Fishermen who receive timely weather notifications will be better able to negotiate challenging situations and make wise decisions.
