A feasibility study is described herein for the use of a magnetic field gradiometer SQUID sensor, as a tank seeker and guidance system. It was determined that an antitank missile could be guided by a gradiometer to the target if delivered into a 300-meter bucket with the tank at the center. Problems of ambiguity, multiple targets and decoys, both deliberate and accidental, are discussed with numerical examples.
