Indian Government Establishes Marine Police Stations in Maharashtra and AP

 

A three tier coastal security ring all along our coast is provided by Marine Police, Indian Coast Guard and Indian Navy.

Government has initiated several measures to strengthen Coastal Security, which includes improving surveillance mechanism and enhanced patrolling by following an integrated approach. Joint operational exercises are conducted on regular basis among Navy, Coast Guard, Coastal Police, Customs and others. Further, continuous review and monitoring of various mechanisms have been established by the Government at different levels, involving various agencies, including the State/Union Territory authorities. The intelligence mechanism has also been streamlined through the creation of Joint Operation Centers and multi-agency coordination mechanism. Installation of radars covering the country’s entire coastline and islands is also an essential part of this process.

Under Coastal Security Scheme Phase-1 of Ministry of Home Affairs, a grant of Rs. 692.6 lakhs to Maharashtra and Rs.267 lakhs to Andhra Pradesh has been sanctioned to establish 12 and 6 marine police stations respectively. Similarly under Coastal Security Scheme Phases-11 a financial outlay of Rs.1579.91 crores has been made. A part of these funds are meant for establishment of 7 and 15 marine police stations respectively in Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. An amount of Rs.441.00 lakhs and Rs.945.00 lakhs respectively has been sanctioned to these two states till date.

Naval Mission Systems Technology

Integrating Naval Assets to Ensure Enhanced Maritime Operations and Support.

Navies are constantly looking at how the collection and dissemination of data from marine helicopters, UAVs, radars and shore based sensors through C2 systems can be improved to produce an accurate, clear, and all-encompassing picture of the maritime theatre for allied forces.

The complexity associated with effectively coordinating the variety of operations of these systems means that interoperability between all systems, divisions, and nations is of paramount importance. Therefore, SMi’s Naval Mission Systems Technology Conference will explore the strategies and technologies required to develop next generation capability in this vital area of national defence.

The expert speaker panel includes: Italian Navy, U.S. Navy, NATO Modelling and Simulation Center of Excellence (M & S COE), BAAINBw, The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), University College London and many more.
