The purpose of this mission was to set up a pair of parallel lines known as a flux gate
that scientists can use to study how ice moves out through the Ross Sea.
The melting zone was shielded with a flux gate
and by argon blowing (Fig.
The mast-mounted stations contain an internal flux gate
compass that aligns wind direction to North.
TorqStar uses a flux gate
magnetometer (FGM) strategically placed around the magnetoelastic ring to measure and convert the magnetic force to an electrical signal.
The sensor technology evaluated consisted of a K band Doppler radar to measure distance traveled in combination with a flux gate
compass for directional information.
A subsurface electronic package consists of magnetic sensing modules, valve position modules, magnetic flux gate
detection unit, microprocessor unit, acoustic data system, connecting cables, and a lithium battery pack.
