Paper Abstract

An array of eight fiber optic vector magnetometers was designed and constructed for use in undersea applications such as harbors, ports, and waterways. We describe the design and performance characteristics of the array including the single-mode fiber optic system and magnetostrictive transducers. Data is presented from both laboratory measurements and from actual undersea operation.
