SHIPBOARD AUTOMATIC DEGAUSSING SYSTEM
Shipboard D/G System suppresses the magnetic signature of the ship by using on-board D/G coils that generate reverse magnetic signature. The magnetic signature of the ship is kept within desired limits by applying appropriate (depending on the ship’s heading and geographical location) currents to the on-board coils. The magnetic signature of a ship with an active D/G system is greatly diminished, shortening the detection distance of a sea mine’s magnetic sensor and thereby reducing the risk of triggering an explosion. Shipboard D/G system is at service on Island class corvettes of Turkish Navy.
