Press Release
Thursday, June 13, 2013

Rolta India Ltd wins contract for establishing "National NAVTEX Network" from a subordinate office under the Ministry of Shipping, Road Transport & Highways, Government of India, that provides general aids to navigation along the Indian coast.

NAVTEX is an international automated medium frequency service for delivery of navigational and meteorological warnings and forecasts, as well as urgent marine safety information to ships. NAVTEX is a component of the International Maritime Organization / International Hydrographic Organization, Worldwide Navigation Warning Service (WWNWS) and is also a major element of the Global Maritime Distress Safety System (GMDSS).

The Indian NAVTEX system to be deployed by Rolta will provide coverage up to 250 nautical miles (460 km) from the Indian coast line and will transmit maritime navigational and meteorological warnings and forecasts, as well as urgent marine safety information to ships at sea in Indian waters. This network will consist of 7 interlinked broadcasting sites to cover the entire Indian coastline with a Command & Control Centre on the Western coast and an identical Command & Control Center on the Eastern coast.

This Indian NAVTEX Network is the first of its kind for the country. Rolta's success in winning this project is a part of its foray in the diversified domains of Communications, Optronics and Command & Control for the Defence and HLS markets.

Commenting on the occasion, Chairman and Managing Director of Rolta, Mr. K. K. Singh said, "We are delighted to have been given this opportunity to establish such a high-tech communication network system for the safety and security of ships in coastal waters of India. This state-of-the-art solution will place India amongst select developed nations worldwide that have similar sophisticated systems in place".
