Abstract : This invention relates to electrical detectors and more particularly to a detector associated with underwater ordnance equipment. The detector depends for its operation on the variations in underwater electric currents produced by the galvanic action and travel of a conducting vessel in sea water. The potentials induced in the detector may be utilized to energize the firing circuit of underwater ordnance equipment.
