Paper Abstract

Many different coil head configurations are currently used in electromagnetic induction (EMI) systems for sensing buried targets. It is difficult to compare the performance of different coil head designs to one another. Comparing two particular implementations is not particularly challenging, but fairly comparing general coil head designs is nontrivial. This work details both a target sensitivity metric and soil sensitivity metric that account for differences such as overall coil size, length, and wire diameter. The metrics are then used to compare the performance of a range of concentric EMI coil head designs.
