he Indian Coast Guard Headquarters (ICG HQ) announced a significant contract signing with M/s Elcome Integrated Systems Pvt. Ltd. The agreement entails the procurement of 28 Global Maritime Distress Safety System (GMDSS) communication consoles for 28 Maritime Rescue Sub Centres (MRSC) spread across the Indian coastline.

This initiative marks a major step forward in enhancing the Indian Coast Guard’s Search and Rescue (SAR) capabilities within the Indian Search and Rescue Region (ISRR). The GMDSS consoles will provide ICG personnel with a state-of-the-art communication system specifically designed for maritime emergencies.

GMDSS is an internationally standardized communication system that plays a vital role in maritime safety. These consoles will equip MRSCs with a reliable and robust platform for:

  • Receiving distress alerts from vessels in danger
  • Coordinating search and rescue operations
  • Communicating effectively with other maritime stakeholders involved in SAR missions

The upgraded communication infrastructure will significantly improve the ICG’s ability to respond swiftly and efficiently to distress calls, ultimately saving lives at sea.
