        Description

        BACKGROUND

        1. Field of Invention

        This invention relates to the electrical measurement and testing, and more specifically to instrumentation for detecting and identifying non-metallic objects.

        2. Description of the Related Art

        Metal detectors are electromagnetic induction devices that induce an electric current in an object to produce a magnetic field. The military relies heavily on metal detectors to locate land mines and explosive devices. Commercially available electromagnetic induction instruments, such as the GEM-3 from Geophex, can detect metal objects with electrical conductivities in a range of greater than 1 million Siemens per meter (S/m).

        It is a problem known in the art that electromagnetic induction instruments cannot reliably detect non-metallic or low-metallic objects used to produce weapons and explosives. Nitrogen fertilizer, conductive polymers and carbon fiber are examples of non-metallic substances used to produce deadly explosive devices.

        The US military has increased its use of carbon fiber explosive devices in recent years and is expected to continue to do so. Carbon fiber devices do not produce shrapnel and reduce collateral injuries caused by shrapnel. However, the carbon fiber casings cannot be detected by instrumentation known in the art.

        There is an unmet need in the art for an electromagnetic induction instrument capable of detecting a wider range of explosive devices.

        SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

        In accordance with one embodiment, a method for creating a high frequency and polarizability data profile for an object of interest includes the steps of instantiating a data object for an object of interest, wherein the data object includes an array to store a plurality of magnetic polarizability values M1-Mn and a plurality of frequency values F1-Fn, and iteratively invoking a function n times. The function includes the steps of updating the frequency value Fn to correspond to the frequency of a signal applied to a transmitter coil, receiving a measured background voltage and an initial background transmitter current , receiving an measured ferrite voltage and an initial ferrite transmitter current , and receiving an measured voltage of the object of interest and an initial transmitter current of object of interest . The function then normalizes the initial background transmitter current , the initial ferrite transmitter current and the initial transmitter current of object of interest to a coil background transmitter current , a coil ferrite transmitter current and a coil transmitter current of the object of interest , respectively, to adjust for sampling conditions. Next, the function calculates the magnetic polarizability value Mn of the object of interest utilizing the measured background voltage , the measured ferrite voltage , the measured voltage of the object of interest , the coil background transmitter current , the coil ferrite transmitter current and the coil transmitter current of the object of interest , and stores the magnetic polarizability value Mn and the frequency value Fn in the array to create the high frequency and polarizability data profile for the object of interest.

        In accordance with another embodiment, a high-frequency electromagnetic induction system includes a frequency generator operatively coupled to a transmitter coil and a receiver coil operatively coupled to a processor configured to perform the above method for creating a high frequency and polarizability data profile for an object of interest.

        In accordance with another embodiment, a computer storage medium is configured with at least one high frequency and polarizability data profile for an object of interest, the at least one high frequency and polarizability data profile including a data object for the object of interest wherein the data object includes an array storing a plurality of magnetic polarizability values M1-Mn and a plurality of frequency values F1-Fn.

        DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF INVENTION

        FIG. 1 illustrates an exemplary embodiment of a high-frequency electromagnetic induction system 100. System 100 includes a frequency generator 10, a transmitter coil 20, a receiver coil 30, a processor 40, a high frequency and polarizability data profile 50 and an optional searchable database 60.

        In the exemplary embodiment shown, frequency generator 10 generates a sine wave at multiple frequencies ranging from approximately 100 kHz to approximately 15 MHz. In other embodiments, the frequency range may be extended to 50 MHz. The number of frequencies generated ranges from approximately 10 to approximately 200. Frequency generator 10 couples to transmitter coil 20, allowing transmission of the sine wave. In one embodiment, frequency generator 10 is an Agilent™ E5071C signal generator.

        Transmitter coil 20 couples to frequency generator 10, allowing transmitter coil 20 to generate a primary magnetic field 21. Primary magnetic field 21 induces eddy currents in a known ferrite sample S or in an object of interest O having conduction of between approximately 1 S/m and approximately 100,000 S/m. These eddy currents, in turn, produce a secondary magnetic field 22.

        Receiver coil 30 couples to processor 40, allowing it to receive secondary magnetic field 22 emitted in response to primary magnetic field 21 emitted by transmitter coil 20.

        Processor 40 is operatively coupled to and receives data from receiver coil 30. Processor 40 is configured to receive the measured background voltage , the initial background transmitter current , the measured ferrite voltage , the initial ferrite transmitter current , the measured voltage of object of interest O and the initial transmitter current of object of interest O . Processor 40 is also configured to normalize initial background transmitter current , initial ferrite transmitter current and initial transmitter current of object of interest to a coil background transmitter current , a coil ferrite transmitter current and a coil transmitter current of object of interest O , respectively, to adjust for sampling conditions.

        Processor 40 is configured to iteratively calculate magnetic polarizability values Mn for each of frequency values Fn. Each frequency value Fn within high frequency and polarizability data profile 50 corresponds to a single magnetic polarizability value Mn. In some embodiments, processor 40 is operatively coupled to a computer storage medium 45. In various embodiments, computer storage medium 45 may be non-volatile random access memory, hard disk drives or optical discs.

        High frequency and polarizability data profile 50 includes a data object having an array of magnetic polarizability values Mn and frequency values Fn. Frequency values Fn correspond to the frequencies generated by frequency generator 10 and may include a preselected range of frequency values Fn ranging from approximately 100 kHz to approximately 50 MHz. The number of frequency values Fn ranges from approximately 10 to approximately 200. In some embodiments, high frequency and polarizability data profile 50 is located on computer storage medium 45.

        Optionally, system 100 includes a searchable database 60 operatively coupled to processor 40. At least one high frequency and polarizability data profile 50 is stored in a searchable database 60. In some embodiments, searchable database 60 contains multiple high frequency and polarizability data profiles 50. Each high frequency and polarizability data profile 50 forms a magnetic polarizability pattern for different objects of interest O, allowing for comparison between high frequency and polarizability data profiles 50 within searchable database 60. In such embodiments, processor 40 may be configured with software to search searchable database 60. In some embodiments, searchable database 60 is located on computer storage medium 45.

        FIG. 2 illustrates a flowchart of an exemplary method 200 for creating a high frequency and polarizability data profile 50 for an object of interest O.

        In step 205, method 200 instantiates a data object for object of interest O. The data object includes an array to store a plurality of magnetic polarizability values Mn and a plurality of frequency values Fn.

        In step 210, method 200 updates frequency value Fn to correspond to the frequency of a signal applied to transmitter coil 20.

        In step 215, method 200 receives a measured background voltage and an initial background transmitter current .

        In step 220, method 200 receives a measured ferrite voltage and an initial ferrite transmitter current .

        In step 225, method 200 receives a measured voltage of object of interest and an initial transmitter current of object of interest .

        In step 230, method 200 normalizes initial background transmitter current , initial ferrite transmitter current and initial transmitter current of object of interest to a coil background transmitter current , a coil ferrite transmitter current and a coil transmitter current of object of interest O , respectively, to adjust for sampling conditions. In one embodiment, step 230 involves modeling initial background transmitter current , initial ferrite transmitter current and initial transmitter current of object of interest O in a physically accurate numerical electromagnetic model of transmitter coil 20 and receiver coil 30.

        In step 235, method 200 calculates magnetic polarizability value Mn of object of interest O utilizing measured background voltage , measured ferrite voltage , measured voltage of object of interest , coil background transmitter current , coil ferrite transmitter current and coil transmitter current of object of interest . In one embodiment, step 235 involves using the equation

        Mn=--

        In step 240, method 200 stores magnetic polarizability value Mn and frequency value Fn in the array to create high frequency and polarizability data profile 50 for object of interest O.

        In step 245, method 200 iteratively repeats steps 205 through 240. Method 200 repeats these steps n times, wherein n numbers between approximately 10 and approximately 200. This will create a new magnetic polarizability value Mn for each new frequency value Fn used during each iteration.

        In optional step 250, method 200 stores high frequency and polarizability data profile 50 in searchable database 60.

        In optional step 255, method 200 repeats steps 205 through 245 to create a high frequency and polarizability data profile 50 for a different object of interest O.

        In optional step 260, method 200 stores high frequency and polarizability data profile 50 for the different object of interest O in searchable database 60 to populate searchable database 60 with a plurality of high frequency and polarizability data profiles 50 for different objects of interest O.

        It will be understood that many additional changes in the details, materials, procedures and arrangement of parts, which have been herein described and illustrated to explain the nature of the invention, may be made by those skilled in the art within the principle and scope of the invention as expressed in the appended claims.

        It should be further understood that the drawings are not necessarily to scale. Instead, emphasis has been placed upon illustrating the principles of the invention. Like reference numerals in the various drawings refer to identical or nearly identical structural elements. Moreover, the terms “about,”“substantially” or “approximately” as used herein may be applied to modify any quantitative representation that could permissibly vary without resulting in a change in the basic function to which it is related.
