Abstract
THE U.S. NAVY IS SEEKING AN ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) FIELD SENSOR CAPABLE OF OPERATION IN THE FREQUENCY RANGE OF 10 KHZ TO 60 KHZ, WHICH CAN BE COVERTLY DEPLOYED FROM A SUBMARINE PLATFORM. OPTICAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC. (OPTECH), PROPOSES A FIBER-OPTIC EM-FIELD SENSOR TO MEET THIS NEED. THE SENSOR HAS THE FOLLOWING MAJOR FEATURES: ATMOSPHERIC NOISE LIMITED PERFORMANCE; IMMUNITY TO EFFECTS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE (EMP); IMMUNITY TO ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) IN THE OPTICAL FIBER LEAD; MULTIMODE LASER OPTICAL SOURCE TO PROVIDE STABLE LASER OPERATION (ELIMINATES MODE HOPPING), AND SINGLE OPTICAL FIBER CONSTRUCTION TO REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF FIBER REQUIRED IN LEAD AND SENSOR ELEMENT.
