Saankhya Labs, a Subsidiary of Tejas Networks, secured a substantial order of Rs. 96.42 Crores from NSIL (NewSpace India Limited), a Government of India entity under the Department of Space. This involves providing Two-Way MSS Terminals (Xponders) for Marine Fishing Vessels along India’s coastal states, enhancing Monitoring, Control, and Surveillance (MCS) systems.

In collaboration with NSIL, ISRO, and the Department of Fisheries, Saankhya Labs will deploy indigenous satellite terminals (Xponders) on fishing vessels. This initiative ensures fishermen’s safety by enabling vessel communication, navigational aid, boundary alerts, and emergency weather notifications.

“We are delighted to win this prestigious contract from NSIL. Having operationalized a similar project for mechanized vessels in Tamil Nadu in partnership with ISRO, earlier, we are fully geared up to support Government of India’s efforts to deploy this network across the coastal states of India,” expressed Mr. Parag Naik, CEO and Co-founder of Saankhya Labs. “It is a matter of pride for us as our award-winning, truly Made in India Satcom Xponders powered by Saankhya’s SDR chipsets are getting deployed in one of the largest Satellite-IoT deployments in the world.”

This project not only aims at improving fishermen’s livelihood and safety but also helps promote deployment of indigenous Satcom solutions operating on ISRO satellites in the service of the nation, a true testimony to self-reliance (Atmanirbhar Bharat) in Satcom.
