Coastal surveillance and surveillance is carried out in real time by the Indian Coast Guard around the Indian coastline through a series of Static Sensors (CSS) consisting of 46 radar stations.
The radars have been installed since 2011 and have no known harmful effects on the environment, according to Defense Department officials.
Coastal surveillance radars are the primary sensors of the Integrated Coastal Surveillance System (ICSS). It can detect sub-20 meter boats such as county boats, dinghies and fishing boats in intense sea clutter environments in all weather conditions. Radar can operate 24/7. It has networking capabilities that work remotely or locally. Primarily, the radar operates in the X and S bands during bad weather.
“Measures taken by governments to enhance coastal security and protect fragile coastal ecosystems from further climate deterioration include patrols, surveillance, exercises, community interaction, and marine pollution and oil spill prevention. It includes social campaigns.
The government also plans to expand the radar station to strengthen coast guard.
The main purpose of the CSR design is to detect and track small fishing vessels for coastal surveillance applications. However, radar can also be used directly for VTS (Vessel Traffic Management Service) applications, harbor applications, surveillance and navigational purposes. By installing it on a ship, it can also be tuned to serve as a sea surface target surveillance radar. Being a solid-state coherent radar with Doppler processing, it can be used for airport surface target surveillance.
