Paper Abstract

Blades, knives, handguns and vehicles are similar targets for magnetic tracking purposes, and their differences can be described parametrically. These parameters can be used for classification, and to model the performance of a sensor node being used for a proposed application. The scaling laws that relate these parameters to actual performance will be reviewed and applied to a real world example. This computed noise limit will be contrasted with the practical limit observed in those measurements.
