China has developed a highly sensitive, portable gravity detector for military use, including underwater navigation
The device’s portability and ease of use make it ideal for military applications such as mobile launch of intercontinental ballistic missiles and submarine navigation, according to a research team at Zhejiang University of Technology in Hangzhou.
The gravimeter will allow the submarine to detect the presence of a seamount or other submarine without the use of sonar, helping to avoid accidents like the one that befell the US nuclear submarine Connecticut in the South China Sea.
