European R&D project AMTEG started
has started a European research project jointly with Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology
and IGI mbH
as well as European partners Geognosia S.L.
and Nordic Iron Ore AB
in May 2018.
The aim of AMTEG (Advanced Magnetic full Tensor Gradiometer) is a new airborne magnetic exploration tool using a full tensor magnetic gradiometer, a 3D-vector magnetometer and an ancillary optically pumped magnetometer for absolute measurements.
The performance will be evaluated in representative European mining areas. The project is funded by BMBF
with co-funding by the European Commission via its ERA-Net frame ERA-MIN 2
