AUTOMATIC OPERATION.-- When setup for
degaussing range, the number of coil turns, the current
automatic operation, magnetometer-controlled
magnitude, and the polarities are established. When
AUTODEG equipment will control the currents in the
calibration is completed, the coils are adjusted for the
ship's degaussing coils to compensate for the ship's
proper number of turns, the equipment is adjusted for
permanent and induced magnetism, regardless of the
automatic operation, and all pertinent information is
ship's heading, roll, pitch, or geographic location.
