Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Hint: This will be the first introductory text about this project that viewers will see.

WHAT IF - Inspiration: Write one sentence that describes a way that your project dares to ask, "WHAT IF?"

What if Somalia finally gains independence?
About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

Aim: To protect Fishermen’s lives ( Providing a early warning system giving them opportunity to get out of the way before they come into any harm) and prosecute illegal activity.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

To place an undersea sensor that transmits data to a handheld device to inform local fishermen of unknown ships/boats on their premises or along the coast of Somalia. For the updates to occur, every boat in Somalia needs to have a tracker installed on their boats. Once the tracker is installed the sensor will be associated with the tracker, therefore distinguishing any other movements besides those connected. Finally, all the data will be feeding into one central machine this will enable us to collate data for several purposes (to see impact, conduct assessment or legal).
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

The early warning system which local fisherman can use once the system detects unknown individuals i.e illegal activities, then the Somali fishermen at least have an opportunity to get out of the way before they come into any harm. Once the project is demonstrates success we will be able to sell the system and to other countries and generate profit to aid other charities or business in Somalia.
