Fiscal Year: 2012
Title: A low-cost unmanned aerial vehicle with towed miniature atomic magnetometer array
Agency: DOD
Contract: N68335-12-C-0221
Award Amount: $149,581.00
 

Abstract:

We propose a research and development program spanning Phase I and Phase II with three main elements: 1. Development of a towed & onboard miniature atomic magnetometer array for platform noise avoidance and compensation. 2. Development of magnetometer array signal processing algorithms that compensate for platform magnetic noise and heading errors. 3. Development of a complete tube-launched prototype UAV system design optimized for MAD with both low magnetic noise components and a sensor array for noise compensation. The technology developed in these tasks may be widely applied to alternative UAV platforms. In developing a complete system with a focus on low overall system cost, this team would be in a position to fill a significant need for military, government and commercial customers.
