My 100 word idea to change Malta
By Prof. Kris Zarb Adami

Malta should set up a coastal over-the-horizon radar (developed at ISSA—Institute of Space Science and Astronomy) with the capability of detecting small fast-moving vessels within a 1000 km radius. Coupling the radar system with a fleet of drones to measure and track the status of vessels and occupants will give unprecedented response time to any maritime emergencies. These drones could then be used to deliver payloads to treat any medical emergencies, while search and rescue ships slowly make their way to the vessels. Collaboration and coordination with other Mediterranean countries could result in a drastic reduction of maritime mortalities.
