Abstract
THE U.S. ARMY NEEDS A MAGNETOMETER CAPABLE OF DETECTING MAGNETIC ANOMALIES AS SMALL AS 0.1 GAMMA (10 -6 GAUSS) IN THE FREQUENCY RANGE OF <0.1 HZ TO 1.0 KHZ. OPTICAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC., PROPOSES A FIBER-OPTIC MAGNETIC SENSOR TO MEET THIS NEED. THE SENSOR HAS THE SIGNIFICANT ADVANTAGE OF ROOM TEMPERATURE OPERATION IN A MICROMINIATURE PACKAGE. IT HAS THE FOLLOWING FEATURES: MINIMUM MAGNEITCFIELD ANOMALIES DETECTION CAPABILITY OF <-.1 GAMMA; FREQUENCY RANGE FROM <0.1 TO 1.0 KHZ; DIPOLE DIRECTIONALITY; PERMANENT MAGNET (PHASE II VERSION) TO PROVIDE BIAS, THUS MINIMIZING POWER REQUIREMENT; SMALL PROBE VOLUME; GROWTH POTENTIAL FOR MULTI-INFLUENCE SENSOR OPERATION; IMMUNITY TO ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) AND ELECTRO-MAGNETIC PULSES (EMP).
