Written by: Staff

Kochi, Apr 18: The Central Government has sanctioned Rs 131 lakh to the Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT) for developing a system to track undersea noises and their sources, which will find diverse applications, including in defence and national security.

CUSAT said the total project cost for development of autonomous buoy systems for radio acoustic positioning and tracking was estimated at Rs 211.89 lakh, of which the Department of Information Technology (CC and BT Group) would contribute Rs 131 lakh.

The system would identify noise sources in the ocean, fix their positions using passive listening systems and track them, it said.

Apart from strategic applications for the defence forces, they could be deployed to protect oil rigs and for research by laboratories and institutions, a CUSAT statement said today.

The project would be implemented in the Center for Ocean Electronics of CUSAT's Department of Electronics.
