Abstract
AN OBJECT WILL ELECTRICAL AND/OR MAGNETIC PROPERTIES IN THE PRESENCE OF A MAGNETIC FIELD WILL PRODUCE SOME SIGNATURE OF ITS PRESENCE OR ITS MOTION, WHICH COULD BE DECIPHERED FROM A PRECISE MEASUREMENT OF THE MAGNETIC FIELD. MAGNETIC SENSORS OF EXTREMELY HIGH SENSITIVITY ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. SQUID DEVICES HAVE A SENSITIVITY BETTER THAN 10(-10) GAUSS HZ1/2. INDUCTION COIL MAGNETOMETERS CAN BE DESIGNED TO HAVE COMPARABLE SENSITIVITY. THESE MAGNETOMETERS CAN BE OPERATED OVER THE FREQUENCY BAND OF 0-1 KHZ. USING AN ARRAY OF SUCH SENSORS, IT IS POSSIBLE TO MEASURE THE MAGNETIC FIELD VARIATIONS NEAR THE GROUND. THESE DATA CAN BE INVERTED TO OBTAIN INFORMATION REGARDING THE PRESENCE OR MOVEMENTS OF AN ELECTRICAL OR MAGNETIC OBJECT.
