Defence Minister A K Antony said in New Delhi that the Coastal Surveillance Network (CSN) Station at Tarapore in Maharashtra will be commissioned very spoon He was inaugurating the 29th Annual Coast Guard Commanders' Conference in New Delhi. The CSN system will provide a big boost to our real time maritime domain awareness, once it is put in place

Shri Antony said that ever increasing threat from the sea has necessitated strengthening of our coastal security mechanism. He said "there is an urgent need to keep our vast Maritime Zones under effective round-the-year surveillance by utilizing all the assets at our disposal".

The Defence Minister said "our security concerns, particularly along the sea lanes and our long coastline have widened the mandate and also increased the responsibility of the Coast Guard." He said "Coast Guard has emerged as a potent and dependable maritime force of our nation." The Defence Minister said the establishment of 46 Chain of Static Sensors atop the light houses along our coast line needs to be speeded up. A lot more needs to be done compared to what has been achieved till now, the Minister added.
