UAV-MAG is a triaxial vector fluxgate magnetometer developed on demand to be used as an on-board magnetometer for magnetic field mapping using a small sized UAV (e.g. DJI Mavic).
Two units form a set which can be used to effectively map magnetic anomalies. First unit is used on-board the UAV, the second serves as a base-station providing compensation of diurnal variations of the Earth’s magnetic field. The sensor cable is approximately 2.2 m long and serves as a “boom” in the drone configuration. Small wing improves the stability of the sensor during the flight. Both units can be used as a precise laboratory fluxgate magnetometers for general applications. The data can be either extracted from the SD card or accessed through USB or 3V3 serial interfaces.
Summary of UAV-MAG parameters is listed below:
Till now the UAV-MAG has been successfully used on various locations in the Czech Republic and abroad (e.g. Odessa Meteor Crater – USA, Tunguska event place – Russia, Snowy Mountains – Australia)
