Shephard: Indonesian Navy deploys Sterna
Published by Shephard, March 2018
SternaTM is a UAS-based portable aerial ranging solution and can be used for different type of magnetic measurements performing several runs along the longitudinal axis.
SternaTM is based on ECA Group’s airborne UAV IT180 which is a compact, high-performance mini-UAS VTOL embedding a magnetometer and its digitiser. ECA Group’s IT180 UAV combined with SternaTM system flies over the vessel to measure the ship's magnetic field using a magnetic sensor payload. The data is then analysed and degaussing parameters are computed.
SternaTM solution is also able to measure coils effects of a degaussing system.
