A major challenge in MAD for submarine detection is the separation of the background magnetic noise from the magnetic field anomalies caused by a submarine. Virtual EM Inc., in partnership with the University of Michigan (UM), proposes to develop a novel electric field sensor system for measurement of the background magnetic noise by correlating the magnetic field background noise with the changing electric field. The primary advantages of this technique is that it allows for a real time measurement of background magnetic field noise with the sensor in close proximity to the magnetic field sensor used for detecting the magnetic anomalies caused by a submarine. This allows both sensors to be placed on a single UAV.
