Abstract
GEO-CENTERS, INC. PROPOSES TO DESIGN, DEVELOP AND TEST A NOVEL TOTAL MAGNETIC FIELD SENSOR SYSTEM THAT WILL ULTIMATELY DETECT SUBMARINES AND SHIPS AT LARGE STAND-OFF DISTANCES. A PROPRIETARY SINGLE-AXIS, MAGNETIC FIELD SENSOR HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AND DEMONSTRATED BY GEOCENTERS, INC. WHICH UNIQUELY COMBINES HIGH SENSITIVITY WITH EXTREME SIMPLICITY, RELIABILITY, RUGGEDNESS, COMPACT SIZE AND LOW COST. THIS SINGLE-AXIS SENSOR WHICH HAS ALREADY BEEN PROVEN BY GEO-CENTERS, INC. IN VARIOUS APPLICATIONS WILL BE THE BASIS FOR DEVELOPING A TOTAL (THREE-AXS) FIELD MAGNETOMETER. THIS PHASE I SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATIVE RESEARCH (SBIR) PROGRAM WILL ALSO ANALYTICALLY ESTIMATE AND EXPERIMENTALLY DEMONSTRATE THE ABILITY OF THE TOTAL FIELD MAGNETIC SENSOR TECHNOLOGY TO DETECT LARGE TARGET VESSELS AT CONSIDERABLE DISTANCES. ESTIMATED MAGNETIC INFLUENCE OF TARGET VESSELS WILL BE ANALYTICALLY DETERMINED AND DETECTION RANGE WILL BE ESTIMATED BASED ON MAGNETIC INFLUENCE SIZE AND SENSOR CAPABILITY. THE MAGNETOMETER IS APPLICABLE TO BEING INCORPORATED INTO AN ARRAY WHICH CAN LOCATE, CLASSIFY, AND TRACK TARGET VESSELS.
