Unregistered fishing boats and those displaying fake registration numbers is being used for criminal activities in the coastal areas. Recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai and the warnings from the intelligence agencies necessitate tamper-proof holographic registration plates with GPRS (HRPG) networking system on all sea going vessels to augment the coastal security. The (HRPG) networking system which includes several security features is a regular reflective tetrahedron in shape, designed with holographic, laser etched and embossed security features to protect against forgery. The system comprises of a GPRS (general packet radio services) and GPS (global positioning system), along with a micro-chip containing the whole information regarding the vessels and sailors/fisherman. The location and identity of the seagoing vessels can be easily traced and tracked out by the enforcement authority. The paper reports in details about the hologram preparation, related design considerations and it advantages.
