Title of the Innovation: Indian Tsunami Buoy System-I
Brief About Innovation
India, with a long coast line of more than 7500 km, remains vulnerable to natural disasters such as tsunami’s and cyclones. Indian Tsunami Buoy System (ITBS), developed is used for monitoring the water level changes in deep oceans to identify the propagation of a tsunami wave. The Indian Tsunami buoy systems type -1 consist of two units, a surface buoy and the Bottom Pressure Recorder (BPR). Communication between BPR and the surface buoy is established through acoustic modems and surface buoys uses satellite (IMARSAT, INSAT and Iridium modems) to communicate the recorded values to shore station.
