about torpedo control systems
…AND FORD INSTRUMENT COMPANY
When a torpedo is launched, its control system must solve many problems â€” not only directing it towards the target, but controlling its depth, speed, and stability.
The Ford Instrument Company produced many torpedo instruments and data recorders during World War II. Since then it has developed several depth control systems which permit wide latitude between firing and set depth without danger of broaching, loss of control, or striking bottom. They permit closer control of a torpedo operating in shallow water and at the same time allow a wide margin of stability with high accuracy.
Like all other Ford Instrument products, Ford torpedo controls feature reliable performance, precision manufacture, minimum maintenance, and easy adaptation when future requirements necessitate changes.
If you have a problem in control engineering, Ford Instrument Company’s forty years of experience in high precision design and production will help you find the answer. For more information about Ford’s products, services and facilities, write for free illustrated brochure.
