SAES has designed and developed the SET-200P / underwater electric potential (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, fully characterise the electric field signature, not only of a ship passing over the sensor array, but also by any other object 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.

Main Features:

  • Underwater electric field measurement
  • Monoaxial / triaxial, assembled in one case or separated
  • Suitable for both direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) electric fields
  • Ultra-low noise electrodes
  • High-sensitivity electronics
  • Large bandwidth
  • Modular and lightweight
  • Integrated with other influence sensors, on request.
