Protecting Our Navy

As our Navy’s ships travel the world’s oceans, the earth’s ever present magnetic fields impart a unique magnetic signature on the ships. There is a specific process that must be followed to minimize the level of permanent magnetism. Magnetic Silencing Facilities (MSF) are used by submarines and surface vessels to complete this process. The process requires the introduction of a controllable magnetic field that is generated by a high power rectifier.
