The Nabhmitra device is a specialized satellite-based communication system designed to enhance the safety of fishermen during their maritime activities. Developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), this innovative technology offers several key features:

  • Two-way Messaging: The device facilitates seamless two-way messaging services, enabling communication to and from fishermen at sea.
  • Weather and Cyclone Alerts: Fishermen receive weather and cyclone warnings in their local language, enabling them to stay informed and make informed decisions.

  • Location Identification: The control center receives alerts with precise location information, aiding in prompt response and rescue efforts.
  • Response Message: Upon receiving an alert, the control center responds with a message to the crew on the boat, confirming that the alert has been received and help is on the way.
