DRM Emergency Warning Feature Demoed at India NDMA Conference
London - Nov 20, 2103 - The DRM Consortium will demonstrate the Emergency Warning Feature (EWF) of the ITU-recommended international Digital Radio Mondiale standard at a special event hosted by India's National Disaster Management Authority on Nov. 22, 2013.
This special session is scheduled for the final day of a four-day event to be held at the Gujarat Institute of Disaster Management, Gandhinagar (Gujarat). Presentations will made by Alexander Zink, Fraunhofer IIS, Vice-Chairman DRM Technical Committee; Radu Obreja, DRM Marketing Director; and, the Honorary Chair of the DRM India Chapter, Yogendra Pal.
Those present will include senior officers of NDMA from nine coastal states and officials from the state broadcaster, All India Radio and Doordarshan, Ahmedabad. The session will also include a technical demonstration of how emergency alerts and information can be signaled and managed using DRM in the country in general and the coastal states in particular. This standard is currently being instituted all over India by All India Radio.
All India Radio is already in the process of installing 72 DRM transmitters, which will eventually cover about 70 percent population of the country. With India's nine coastal states, the EWF feature is of utmost importance to give emergency messages to people living near the coast, as well as fishermen and all those on ships.
