Thanks Sunburn for the answer.
Tried this now.
The maximum detection range of the CA/ASQ-508(V) MAD sensor is 1nm.
The detection check happens as the CP-140 is at 1000ft and the submarine is at 1312ft. The slant range between them is 0.60nm, well within the MAD sensor's range, so the detection happens.
Which, if any, of the above elements is unreasonable ?
That's all the input required for a MAD detection? range?
What are we missing?
You can add Distance to the seabed. MAD doesn't work well in coastal waters because the magnetometer dont measure absolute parameters. THe magnetometer measure differences...contrast...then in coastal waters, MAD detect a lot of natural anomalies of the seabed (and also can detect sunken ships). When the seabed hasn't natural anomalies....It still can mask the magnetic signature of the submarine, his signature can be decreased over his signature in deep waters because we are measuring differences, not an absolute parameter as I said so the magnetic signature of the seabed is greater than the magnetic signature of the sea water.
A friend of mine told me that they do not use MAD in areas with depth less than 1,000 meters (3,330 ft).
P.S. that is very simplistic but can work here. Heading of submarine and Aircraft, speeds...also take account in real life.
