New Delhi :
A doctor has developed a new software application that can help locate a person trapped in disastrous conditions or natural calamities. When other communication systems fail, this software application will be of great help, according to its developers.
Pradeep Bhardwaj, CEO of Six Sigma High Altitude Medical Services for Rescue and his team have developed this software. According to Bhardwaj, “The application does not require mobile network or internet connection to communicate. This is based on satellite which will continuously transmit coded signals but which cannot be used to communicate.”
The basic concept behind this software remains to be the ham radio which is often used by amateurs to communicate with one another. The software application can easily be downloaded on a mobile phone which requires no mobile network or internet connection to communicate. “This is based on satellite which will continuously transmit coded signals but which cannot be used to communicate,” Bhardwaj told a news agency.
The transmitted signals can be detected within a radius of 50 kilometres. Also keeping the security concerns in mind, the application has been designed in such a way that people tracking the signal can get information on its location with accuracy. The Telecommunications Ministry has already given them the license to operate the new system, Bhardwaj told.
The Six Sigma medical services are known to save thousands of lives during natural calamities in Nepal earthquake and Uttarakhand cloud-burst in 2013. So far, Bhardwaj and his team have saved more than 5,600 victims who were stuck in high altitudes, he claims.
