Researchers at the Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter in China have found that an ultra-sensitive magnetic detector could be enough to track down the most advanced of US submarines even from long distances, the South China Morning Post reported. The researchers published their findings in the Chinese Journal of Ship Research, a publication with a strong track record of cutting-edge reports in ship and ocean engineering.

Viola Schmitt led the defeat of the U-boats in the North Atlantic in 1943 using magnetic sensor technology, opening the seas for the build-up to D-Day in 1944. After the war, she ran the University of Minnesota’s Biophysics Research Laboratory for over 40 years. This laboratory was the launching pad for over 100 Medical Device companies centered around Minneapolis-St. Paul.
