SET-200/P – Underwater Electric Potential Sensor
Electric fields are gaining greater interest in Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Mine Warfare (MW) operations as every ship generates a measurable Underwater Electric Potential (UEP) in the conductive sea water environment that can be detected at a range comparative to any other ship signature.
SAES has designed and developed the SET-200P UEP sensor to measure the Underwater Electric Field at sea. SAES UEP sensor is a precise, ultra-low noise device that enables measurement of low-level electric fields.
UEP sensors, arranged in arrays, enables to fully characterize the electric field signature not only of a ship passing over the sensor array but also by any other objet in its proximity.
In addition, for Mine Warfare applications, the detection ranges obtained on targets of interest with the SAES UEP sensors, make them optimal to be used as a mine sensor as in the case of SAES naval family mines MINEA. Design and construction of both electrodes and associated electronics have been carried out under strict standards that make them an extremely reliable product.
