Drone Mounted Magnetometer systems can capture high resolution data for magnetometer survey projects. Magnetometers can detect hidden magnetic materials and objects which are currently being used for detecting unexploded ordinances such as land mines, mineral exploration, buried pipe and cable infrastructure, and archeology.
Recent improvements in UAV technology platforms have made this solution even more viable, with longer flight times, precision navigation, and heavy lift capabilities. The advantage of Drone Magnetometers are safer, more efficient, and cost effective data acquisitions when compared to conventional terrestrial handheld scanning and manned aircraft systems. The integration of UAV GPS and magnetometer data can generate geo-referenced maps.
