Abstract:

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I study will briefly survey the various magnetic-field sensors that meet the requirements for being inexpensive yet highly sensitive. The present sensor of choice is a coil with a high-permeability core. This coil will be suspended vertically in the water column. The main challenge will be to reduce motion noise by the suspension system and ancillary motion sensors. Other noise sources (wave, geology, geomagnetic, and flow) will be characterized and quantified; an approach for their reduction will be proposed. An operational analysis will be used to predict the performance of the noise-reduced sensors against various target strength levels in the presence of various noises.
