Abstract
The 1/r3 dependence of the magnetic field with distance r makes the vector magnetometer an ideal sensor in undersea systems for the localization and tracking of vessels. Since the undersea system typically spans several hundred meters to several kilometers, use of fiber optics for both telemetry and sensing offers inherent advantages of low cable weight, immunity to electromagnetic interference on the signal transmission paths, and high channel capability.
