The Department of Radio Electronic Equipment was established in 1988 by combining the two oldest departments of the Faculty of Radio Engineering: the Departments of Radio Transmitting and Radio Receiving Devices. Currently, it is one of the largest departments of the faculty.
The department has seven educational laboratories and several research teams. The department provides training in two main areas. In the field of infocommunications and communication systems, it trains specialists in communication with mobile objects and telecommunications. In the field of design and construction of radio equipment, it graduates specialists in computer-aided design and modeling. The department initiated the opening of a related specialty at the faculty and organized the first interfaculty laboratory of telecommunications.
The main scientific fields of the department are:
- development of microwave equipment for radar and telecommunication systems: radio signal generators with a low level of phase noise, antennas, filters, broadband amplifiers, and other microwave devices;
- development of electronic equipment for control systems of railway and metro facilities;
- development of microprocessor devices for matching primary converters of physical quantities and information flows;
- development of training and laboratory complexes in all major areas of radio electronics in the field of radio transmitting, radio receiving, digital and microprocessor devices, and power supply devices.
There are a number of innovative fields at the department, which may not be provided with a large amount of scientific work now, but have a great future. The department is a pioneer in the development of a three-dimensional vision system. The three-dimensional display developed at the department in 1995 was demonstrated at international exhibitions in Italy and China and received diplomas. Its basic principles were not yet surpassed by famous international companies. Lecturers and researchers of the department have published many monographs and training manuals.
