In naval applications, both manned and unmanned, the pressure sensing capabilities provided by All Sensors are proving to be indispensable.

For Submarines, our sensors play a critical role in ensuring operational safety and effectiveness. By monitoring hull integrity and internal pressure levels, any potential issues that could compromise the vessel's structural integrity can be detected. The data provided by our sensors is crucial for the management of ballast systems, to precisely control buoyancy and depth needed for the maneuverability in underwater operations.

Surface Ships rely on pressure sensing solutions to monitor environmental conditions (onboard weather stations), propulsion systems, and pressurized hulls as well as the effectiveness of damage control systems in the event of a
hull breach. They provide rapid and accurate data that can be the difference between a successful containment of damage and a catastrophic failure
