Marine sensors, electronics & ocean acoustics


Electronic support facilities such as Helium leak detector, EMI/EMC analyser, Shock and Vibration analyser, Environmental chamber, and corrosion test facility have been established. Non-off-the-shelf underwater components like 250 kW motor, fibre optic connector have been developed in association with Indian industry. Wide band 3-90kHz light weight transducer technology, a wide band 2-16, 2kW single element transmitter suitable for sub-bottom profiling and long range under water communications, and CYMBAL transducer elements and arrays have been developed. Designed and developed a broadband transceiver for new generation P17 platforms and transferred the technology to BEL. An automated ambient noise measurement system for time series measurements has been developed and deployed in three locations. . Acoustic Test Facility (ATF) has been upgraded for increasing the frequency range from 100 kHz to 300 kHz. Tsunami surface buoy and an bottom pressure recorder have been developed and tested at more than 800 m water depth. An Autonomous Underwater Profiling Drifter (AUPD) has been indigenously developed and demonstrated. Patents have been filed based on the above developments.
