Abstract:

In this SERDP SEED project, QUASAR Federal Systems QFS carried out a proof-of-concept study for airborne UXO detection using AC induction sensor IS magnetometers. Current airborne UXO detection is dominated by Cs-vapor, DC total field magnetometers. These DC magnetometers are expensive, consume high power, and do not provide enough information about the shape or orientation of the target. QFS has recently developed a compact IS magnetometer with equivalent sensitivity to current state-of-the-art induction sensors in a significantly smaller package.
