The model G-822A cesium airborne magnetometer provides unmatched versatility of performance, size, function, and cost effectiveness. The G-822A sensor uses a precise, proven design with carefully selected and tested components to ensure the very best specifications in sensitivity, noise, heading error and absolute accuracy.
The G-822A magnetometer outputs a Larmor frequency that corresponds to the strength of the local magnetic field. This Larmor frequency is counted by a user-supplied counter or a professional compensator such as the RMS Instruments AARC500 Automatic Digital Compensator.
The sensor and electronics package is weatherproof, temperature controlled, and delivers full performance under extreme operating conditions. With a proven record of stable and reliable operation over long periods, the G-822A is the industry standard for manned aircraft and large-unmanned aircraft surveys.
