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.
Works well, but per the STC, can't be installed closer than 24 inches from the flux gate
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.
CRM500 comes in multiple form factors and configurations to enable easy "plug n play" upgrades from the existing Floated Flux Gate
