HA NOI (VNS) — The Hoang Sa archipelago area will soon have a coastal communication station as part of a national project recently approved by the Prime Minister.
New maritime communication stations will also be built on Phu Quy island (central Binh Thuan province) and in the provinces of Nam Dinh, Quang Binh, Ben Tre, Tien Giang, and Bac Lieu.
The project aims to provide communications services for the marine community and support search-and-rescue operations, maritime safety and environmental protection as well as defence and security tasks and sea-based economic development.
Existing stations in HCM City and the northern port city of Hai Phong will start using digitised radio. Infrastructure will also be improved in Hon Gai, Thanh Hoa, Ben Thuy, Hon La, Hue, Da Nang, Nha Trang, Ly Son, Quy Nhon, Phu Yen, Phan Rang, Phan Thiet, Can Tho, Ca Mau and Kien Giang.
Standby stations to improve the quality of information coverage will be set up in four regions: Quang Ninh to Ha Tinh, Quang Binh to Quy Nhon, Phu Yen to Ninh Thuan, and Binh Thuan to Kien Giang.
Surveillance technologies, station-to-station management solutions and cable and satellite-linked transmission networks will be deployed to enable ship-to-land, ship-to-ship and land-to-land communications. — VNS
