India’s state-owned shipyard, Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers (GRSE), is all set to make a groundbreaking advancement in the realm of maritime surveillance. The company has recently announced on Twitter that it will be unveiling its first indigenously made Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) on the 28th of this month. This development promises to revolutionize India’s ability to monitor and safeguard its vast coastline through innovative and homegrown technology.
Maritime surveillance has witnessed significant advancements with the adoption of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or drones. These state-of-the-art tools have proven to be highly cost-effective and efficient resources, empowering governments and organizations to monitor and protect expansive water areas while minimizing risks to personnel.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have opened up new vistas of real-time monitoring over large stretches of water, providing security agencies with unparalleled surveillance capabilities. These drones can be equipped with advanced sensors, including cutting-edge cameras, radars, and infrared technology, which significantly enhance their ability to detect suspicious ships and potential threats.
By utilizing AUVs, GRSE aims to complement existing aerial surveillance capabilities, thereby offering a comprehensive and integrated approach to maritime domain awareness. Autonomous Underwater Vehicles operate without human intervention, making them ideal for discreet and extended underwater surveillance missions. Their ability to access hard-to-reach or confined underwater spaces adds a new dimension to India’s maritime security efforts.
