Together with partners from Asia Air Survey and CTI Engineering International, ADRC met with Mr. Siva Balan (Director for Operations) and other AHA Centre officials in Jakarta. The meeting explored the possibility of applying a constellation of Japanese Satellites' positioning service as emergency information platform. The key feature of this platform is that it can send text and voice messages to a receiver. By using an application to decode the sent messages, communities can receive the information even in the absence of telecommunication infrastructure, telephone networks, or Wi-Fi. This platform is valuable to communities in mountainous areas, island communities, or areas where telecommunication infrastructure is limited. AHA Centre officials recognized the added value of this emergency information platform, especially for Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, and Vietnam (CLMV), as these ASEAN member countries have limited capacities in disaster forecasting and early warning.(2020/02/13 14:40)
