There is a saying “Time and tide waits for none”. The saying is indeed true. Time waits for none. It comes and goes. Time is absolutely unboundable. Nothing on earth can subdue or conquer it.
The most remarkable feature of time is its preciousness. Its value is unfathomable and its power is inestimable. Its potential is something which we cannot calculate. A minute is enough to win a victory. A second is enough to make you the richest man in the world. A fraction of a second can make a difference between life and death.
Time is Money - Benjamin Franklin
We have heard of Atomic Clock & Radio Clock from early 19th century, hardly they are into use publicly or for government. But we can imagine how beneficial it would be if we can introduce the technology of Long Wave Time Dissemination for Public and Government, where a single time scenario can bring in huge amount of benefits in terms of revenue and social importance.
“NCD’s Radio Clock Sync Time Signal can work with other technologies to save energy, save fuel and hundreds of natural resources just by managing things in right time with a One IST Time Scenario, where there is no need of manual intervention but the process are managed only by simple Time Signal Dissemination technology – ONE NATION, ONE TIME”
INDIA has a requirement to plan for telecommunications services which can be used during times of public emergency. In particular there is a need to be able to quickly alert and instruct the public in the event of a large scale emergency, such as a natural disaster or terrorist attack. Long Wave Radio technology, with its nation-wide reach and inherent immunity to ground-based phenomena, is an excellent candidate to play a key role in such a system.
Since Long Wave covers even far-off inaccessible areas, word of caution can be transmitted to the people in time of national crisis. In case of natural catastrophes, the whole nation can be alerted in few seconds. Thus a major disaster can be averted.
“The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake - resulting in a massive Tsunami killing over 2,30,000 people in fourteen countries, and inundating coastal communities with waves up to 30 meters (98 ft) high. It was one of the deadliest natural disasters in recorded history. Indonesia was the hardest-hit country, followed by Sri Lanka, India, and Thailand.”
The Ocean Information System, set up by Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), an autonomous body under Ministry of Earth Sciences, is disseminating timely data among the fishermen going out into sea from Krishna district. Before venturing into the sea, the fishermen collect information from the Ocean Information System set up at the Panchayat Office.
Is it sufficient? There are more than 100 different phases where the fishermen find or get into trouble in midst of the ocean, where only coastal vigilance is the only chance they can get back to their life.
What if their boats or ships get stranded in mid of the ocean for engine failure? What if a sudden weather change makes their life miserable? And it is still evitable that 1000s of fishermen went missing every year across our country.
To bring in the service of Long Wave remote alert system the fishermen can be informed well ahead of time about any drastic change of weather or other catastrophes which can be life destructive. A simple receptive device in their boat or ship can make them feel comfortable and confident about going into deep sea.
The system also allows checking whether boats are doing anything illegal. For example, there will be a warning beep when a boat comes within a mile of the international maritime boundary. The fishermen will know when they are approaching the boundary line, and they will be expected to change course.
“Simple information can save thousands of lives as well as any illegal activities across international boundaries.”
Providing weather information to every household in India and for displaying it on reasonable and any time available receiver units. Multifunctional displays show the time of day and also provide a weather report free of charge – including the forecast. In Europe, a multitude of these products is on the market which is taking advantage of this service.
Farmers rely on weather forecasts to decide what work to do on any particular day. For example, drying hay is only feasible in dry weather. Prolonged periods of dryness can ruin cotton, wheat, and corn crops.
Even the lists of industries are endless where weather forecast plays a vital role to take necessary steps to avoid or act accordingly as per the requirement.
“NCD broadcast of such weather information covering vast demographic areas can help each and every industry right from Aviation to Agriculture in the fastest possible time frame.”
Globally, poverty tends to have a rural face. In disadvantaged rural areas, the drivers of poverty are also the drivers of ill health. The health system, a determinant of health, is often not sufficiently equipped in rural areas to respond to the needs of the population, contributing to rural−urban health inequities.
Similarly rural India contains over 68% of India's total population, and half of all residents of rural areas live below the poverty line, struggling for better and easy access to health care and services. Health issues confronted by rural people are many and diverse – from severe malaria to uncontrolled diabetes, from a badly infected wound to cancer.
This is where the birth of the combined use of electronic communication and information technology in the health sector becomes invincible together with government and private health campaigns.
By the aid of Long Wave one way alert messages numerous health epidemics can be prevented across rural as well as urban India.
Precautions & measures can be taken to avoid &anp; reduce serious ailments before the diseases take a big grasp of any specific location or demography.
“Health Alert Campaigns like National Malaria Control Program and others can be easily broadcasted through. Long Wave alerting system in the most cost effective method.”
A smooth drive along the country-wide 80,000-km national highway network may be a given for Indians today. But, less than 20 years ago, the highway was just 34,000 km (1995). During this period, the national highway network has increased by over 40,000 km, which is more than 2.5 times the 14,000 km of national highways added in the preceding 40-year period of 1951-91.
While the Government has created a longer, wider network of highways, road safety is a parameter where the country has failed.
India has one of the largest road networks globally. It also has the highest number of road accident deaths.
So it is always helpful if all the vehicle drivers get to access information on time to avoid traffic caused by accidents, construction, landslides or other delays during their journey. Highway messaging service through Long Wave one way message alerts can work with receptive device subscribers to inform the problem spots, high traffic zones etc.

Date: 30th July, 2012, 2:30 A.M. - Collapse of National Grid System India's biggest power blackout from a series of technical failures which plunged large parts of the north, east and west into darkness?
Two hundred coal miners are reportedly trapped in underground mines in West Bengal where mines are operated by government-owned Eastern Coalfields.
The blame fell on northern states such as Haryana and Uttar Pradesh for drawing more than their quota of power from the national grid, thereby weakening it, and ostensibly bringing about the failure.
To avoid such situation, if an Alert & Disconnection System is proposed that if a particular state is drawing more than their quota of power, then the necessary department of that state will be warned by a Alert Message, and the task of load management can be handled. if not acted upon another alert message with a judicious disconnection of parts can help stop cascade failure.
Long Wave Alert System along with Energy Management technology can be highly beneficial in managing power as per quota of each state and other Energy Management Requirements.
