Modi to commission surveillance radar system in Mahe

India will set up 32 surveillance stations fitted with navigational military radars in Mauritius, Seychelles, Maldives and Sri Lanka to keep an eye on the Chinese maritime traffic in the Indian Ocean region.

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is leaving for a five-day tour of the island nations, during which he would commission the first coastal surveillance radar system in the Mahe island in Seychelles.

The remaining seven stations in Seychelles would be up and running in the next six months. Five of them would be at Mahe whereas three would be located in outer islands.

While the prime minister was initially scheduled to visit all the four islands housing these coastal radars, Maldives was dropped out of his itinerary because of the ongoing political turmoil.

The India Ocean surveillance radar network comprises eight stations each in Seychelles and Mauritius and 10 in Maldives. Former defence minister A K Antony commissioned the snooping stations in Mauritius about two years ago.

The six units in Sri Lanka, however, do not have the radar at the moment but only the automatic identification system (AIS) and electro-optical instruments. Other islands would have all the three components – maritime navigational radar that operate in the I-band frequency, AIS for boats weighing more than 300 tonnes and the electro-optical system for imaging.

While the network would aid these islands to monitor their Exclusive Economic Zone, India can use the data to keep an eye on the Chinese maritime traffic.

“We have to do it for our own interest. Else, someone else (read China) will gain in the time we lose,” said a source.

The 10 coastal radar stations in Maldives are soon expected to receive the Cabinet approval. Navy chief Admiral R K Dhowan visited Mauritius in January when he reviewed the progress of several naval projects, including the coastal stations.

  4. Assumption seychelloid sovereign territories,should used for a seychelles coasz gaurd base,something we have been asking pl to do for years noe,not any foreign base.

    MODI AND PL intrntion is not to build a small naval base for Seychrlloid,teem with seychrllois coast gaurd perdonals etv..but an indian cocupied force on our territories for indian interests not seychelles in zhe first place.

    Assumption for seychrllois coast guard Not ondian..no foreign military present on our soil pl,as it was for USA,Chines and ozhers,india would not be an exception
    Sovereignzy of seychelles is above anx foreign counzries interests and as a sovereign country,ee should be not slave to any foreign country,or allow thtm zo rape our patrimonx and sovereignty for their self~interests to the dezriment of seychelles sovereihnty and territorial integrizx

  7. Allow to comment on Mont Buxton Representatives,who want to see a re~introduction of NYS.Is this a good or bad idea?The answer is,it is both.It is a bad idea,becuase what the Mont Buxton Representatives want is,a replica of Rene!s NYS,which was a machine of indoctrination,to keep youths ending compulsary education off the streets and job market away for two years.Rene!s has a partial success....apart form the education it provided,which allows many youths to likes of JUGE DODIN,to access high education ,else he would have been a farmer.Other vocational activities such as brushing Pigs! Teeths,gardening-using AK ~47,was more KEEP~BUSY activities without any meaningful vocational objectives.Proof,PAUL POOL,who shared the same room as JUGE DODIN has become professional thief.It is also true,that most of those who attended N YS,came out more diciplined as when they entered NYS.But,generally speaking,Rene!s NYS,was a waste of tax payers! Money and for most of those whi attended NYS,ended up as they enter in dispair.
    The good thing about the re~introduction of NYS,rather a new system that answer to the exprction and need of dispair youths who did not made it to Polytechnic,Uni,would be a DUAL VOCATIONAL EDUCATION SYSTEM...that will give disperate youths a srcond change of being useful to society and themselves.This system or provision of Vocational Education and Training,is a mission,that is shared by Government and Professional Organizations(all srize of firms etc..,)
    HOW IT WORK?Participants attend half day,classes ,whiile,the remaining half day is spent doing an apprenticeship at a host company,on a “ON~THE~JOB or ON~SITE“experience and practical skills.Whereas,the VET college,impair theoretical knowledge(trade specifics and general knowledge) to apprentices.End the end of the month,the host company may give participant,a small encouragement salaty of its chose(voluntary).
