SPACE (Submersible Platform for Acoustic Characterization and Evaluation)

The Indian Navy has inaugurated a new submersible platform called SPACE (Submersible Platform for Acoustic Characterization and Evaluation) in Idukki, Kerala. Developed by the Naval Physical & Oceanographic Laboratory under DRDO, SPACE is designed as a premier facility for testing and evaluating sonar systems used across the Navy’s ships, submarines, and helicopters. The platform includes a surface-floating platform and a submersible section that can dive up to 100 meters deep, equipped for various underwater research activities. This advancement marks a significant stride in enhancing the Navy’s capabilities in Anti-Submarine Warfare and underwater acoustic research, further contributing to the modernization of India’s naval technology and supporting indigenous technology development initiatives.
