Underwater Transducer Evaluation Facility( UTEF)
UTEF is one of the unique and remarkable facilities in the department, intended for evaluating underwater transducers as well as many underwater systems. The facility is often used by various institutions for development and testing of underwater systems other than in house development. The UTEF consists of Water Tank for conducting experiments and Trial runs for the designed Buoys, Underwater communication facility and Underwater imaging systems.
Having felt the importance of research activities in the area of Ocean Systems and Technologies, CUSAT had established a Centre for Ocean Electronics (CUCENTOL) in the Department of Electronics as a joint venture of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India and University Grants Commission on 18 December 1991. To mark the formal opening of CUCENTOL, a symposium on Ocean Electronics (SYMPOL-91) was organized from 18-20 December 1991.
The 21st century is an extraordinary era, which requires concerted and coordinated efforts for harnessing the potential and resources available in Universities and institutions of repute for developing systems and products matched in quality, for the good governance of the ocean, as well as for the exploration and exploitation of the ocean resources for the socio-economic benefits of our Nation, taking into account the global developments in this highly specialised area of technology. The department intends to further strengthen the research in the strategic area of the Underwater sector, which the Government of India is keenly exploring through the Deep Ocean mission.
