Magnetic gradiometry using a rotary-wing unmanned aircraft system

Balch Exploration Consulting Inc. (BECI) develops low cost geophysical survey solutions to the natural resources sector. BECI recently built an unmanned helicopter for magnetic surveying for mineral exploration. The objectives of this internship is to equip the BECI unmanned helicopter with a custom-designed frame carrying two magnetometers recording simultaneously and to perform a demonstration survey over a gold deposit. The main project deliverable is a series of maps highlighting the variations of the magnetic field in different directions.

Magnetic surveying with a new high-precision fluxgate magnetometer on a rotary-wing unmanned aircraft system

Balch Exploration Consulting Inc. (BECI) develops low cost geophysical survey solutions to the natural resources sector. They are investing in the development of a rotary-wing unmanned aircraft system (UAS) with a new high-precision fluxgate magnetometer. The general objective of this internship is to develop a rotary-wing UAS for aeromagnetic surveying.
