India: To address the pipeline security concern, GAIL and National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), which is a unit of Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), have launched a surveillance geo-portal called ‘Bhuvan-GAIL portal’. The portal makes use of space technology for GAIL’s pipeline Right of Use (RoU), and will start live monitoring by January 2016. GAIL is also interested in making use of other geospatial technologies, like advanced Unmanned Ariel Vehicles (UAVs), for integration with this system. GAIL has also developed a mobile app, from which the pictures of the exception taken from any mobile describing the actual scenario can be uploaded instantly to the portal.
