KOCHI: The Cochin University of Science and Technology ( Cusat) has received frequency allotment for the Stratosphere Troposphere (ST) Radar, coming up at the main campus. The radar will operate at 205 MHz frequency, according to the approval given by the wireless promotion and coordination (WPC) wing of the ministry of communications.

There was a delay in issuing the bandwidth by the Centre following controversies surrounding the 2G, 3G spectrum licences during the first UPA government.

The project will now speed up as the technical committee has approved the design of the radar. “The radar is being made by the Chennai-based Data Patterns (India) Pvt Ltd which has won the contract for supplying and installing the system,” said K Mohankumar, project director of ST Radar facility and professor at the department of atmospheric sciences.

The Rs 20-crore doppler radar is the first of its kind provided to a university by the ministry of science and technology for research purpose.

Meanwhile, work on the first phase of the 22,000-sq ft building, which will house the facility, is nearing completion. A total of 712 antenna elements will be installed at the facility which will provide information on weather, atmosphere and the monsoon.

KOCHI: An academic delegation from a Mexican university visited Cochin University of Science and Technology on Monday to study how the institute has managed to successfully hatch and farm a valued freshwater shrimp species, Macrobrachium rosenbergil.

The Mexican university, Universidad Juarez Autonoma de Tabasco, is eager to study the method adopted by Cusat to hatch and farm a valued freshwater shrimp species, Macrobrachium rosenbergil, as a similar species — Macrobrachium carcinus– which is found in Mexico is slowly becoming extinct.

Macrobrachium carcinus, which was distributed along the Latin American coast has now been put in the red list as it is considered to be an endangered species. “In Mexico along fishing of Macrobrachium carcinus is now permitted. But they fear that due to over exploitation, this shrimp species, which costs anything between Rs 1000 and Rs 1800 per kg, will soon become extinct even in Mexico. Therefore, since last two years they have been trying to hatch or farm them but without much success”, said Cusat registrar, A Ramachandran.

Cusat has entered an MoU with the Mexican university, enabling two Mexican students to come to Cusat to study the hatchery technology of Macrobrachium rosenbergil. Cusat would also help Mexico develop a hatchery technology that would enable them to successfully hatch Macrobrachium carcinus.

“They expressed a desire to visit Cusat after reading online the research papers published by Cusat on Macrobrachium rosenbergil farming and hatchery, for they want to effectively adopt the methods used by us to hatch Macrobrachium carcinus, which is put in the red list in South America. Therefore, we have entered an MoU with the Mexican university and hope this is the beginning of a new academic relation with Mexico”, said Cusat VC, Ramachandran Thekkedath

“The day a woman can walk freely on the roads, that day we can say that India achieved independence” said Mahatma Gandhi. Yet, we celebrate our independence every year oblivious of what is happening out there in the cruel world. On one hand we designate women as the “epitome of super power” and on the other we fail to understand, let alone eliminate, the insecurity she suffers to walk alone on the streets, the adversities she faces at every stage, every place and every moment.
The recent brutality that occurred in the national capital and the demise of the brave girl has raised a serious question on the Independence of women in this country. What are we doing to restore their security, their pride and their stature?
This short film is a small attempt, by the employees of Schneider Electric, for a huge task of restoring the respect of Women. It is a mere REFLECTION of the sufferings of women in the society. We hope the nation wakes up to the call.

The Cochin University of Science and Technology (Cusat) has submitted 23 project proposals worth Rs 616.28 crore to the University Grants Commission (UGC) under its ‘Innovation University’ scheme.

As per the scheme, UGC invites proposals from universities on innovative teaching and research programmes for financial support during the 12th plan.

“We have applied in areas where nothing much has been done. While all proposals may not be accepted, we are sure that at least a handful of them will be cleared in the first phase,” said vice-chancellor Ramachandran Thekkedath.

After UGC takes a call on projects, Cusat plans to approach other funding agencies and ministries for support. “Most of the departments have developed their infrastructure as part of different projects that have been funded by government agencies,” he said.

While the selected ‘innovative project’ would receive a one-time grant of Rs 25 crore, the ‘innovative programme’ will receive a grant of between Rs 25 to Rs 100 crore over a period of up to five years. In addition to the above, 16 project proposals worth Rs 12.98 crore have also been submitted to various funding agencies. Last year, various agencies sanctioned Rs 65.27 crore for 61 projects to the university.
