Abstract: In this paper we focus on detecting the missing parts of ships, submarines and aircrafts. The world of automation does not prefer time consuming processes in detection of missing parts. Hence, this marine metal detector is proposed. Raspberry pi acts as the core of the device. This device is activated when water sensor detects water. The device runs on renewable energy. The device submerges and moves in the form of a sine wave. When any metal part is detected, the device goes to off state and comes to the surface of the water. When the device starts floating, GSM module that is bridged to the device sends a message to the user through satellite. With GSM signal as reference, the location will be tracked. This enables users to detect the missing parts within short range. The device is conceptualized such that it is fully automated, eliminates man power, reduces time, utilizes renewable source, is compact in size and requires very little or no maintenance.
