PUDUCHERRY: If an Indian fisherman crosses the maritime boundary with Sri Lanka, then he may be detected using Judicious Fishing System in the near future. The system was among the displays at the Regional Science Exhibition, which began here at the Kadirgamam Government Higher Secondary School here on Wednesday.

Chief Minister N Rangasamy inaugurated the exhibition here.

Explaining the functioning of his Global Positioning System (GPS) model, its young inventor S Krishna Prasannan told Express that the system uses signals of the Indian Regional Navigational Satellite System-1D (IRNSS-1D) to track the fishing vessel fitted with the Differential Global Positioning system.

The class IX student of the Bharathidasan Higher Secondary School, Muthirapalayam, said the signals sends out an alert when close to the maritime border, so that the fishermen themselves could avoid entering the neighbouring country’s waters.

Prasannan’s model is among the 320 creations of the students of the primary, middle school, high school and higher secondary schools that are kept on display at the exhibition, which will end on November 27.

Mosquito repellents, underground drainage cleaning machine, e-waste management model and cooking using solar energy were among the displays, which attracted the visitors.

Teachers of the schools have also put up nearly 17 exhibits along with their wards in the exhibition.
