Phuket had a very serious marine disaster which killed 47 Chinese tourists and we must prevent such occurrences from happening again

How would a satellite prevent that?

Of course this would be after: proper training and licensing of captains, vessel seaworthiness inspections and licenses, proper maintenance etc.

 

Just joking, we all know it's always the cart before the horse, or we can run before we learn to walk....

 

Or we just don't care.

Anything to improve their safety record would be a good thing. That major storm that brought down the Phoenix had to be on the radar somewhere! Such disasters are unnecessary these days.
