Abstract:

This report documents results from a series of measurements of target electromagnetic induction EMI responses in a large salt water tank, and background EMI responses in various salt water and sedimentary environments along the York River, VA estuary. The electronics and data acquisition system used in the tests was a standard transient EMI TEM package used for munitions detection and classification on land. For the tank tests, targets included simple aluminum and steel test items spheres, spheroids and cylinders as well as inert ordnance items. The basic test protocol involved carefully measuring and comparing target and background responses in air and in the water.
