RELATION TO SIMILAR EQUIPMENT
The AN/ASQ-10 is similar in function to the AN/AS-8.
Magnetic Detecting Set AN/ASQ-10 is designed to
detect submarines from low-flying aircraft.
presence of a submarine is indicated by deflections of
the inked trace on a paper chart. The AN/ASQ-10
determines the presence of a submarine by measuring
the change produced in the earth's magnetic field. The
