Increasing interest in underwater monitoring has resulted in a design
of the devices for remote sensing. The magnetic field is one of the
important element in underwater monitoring. A component magnetic
technique is the favoured sensor configuration to search the natural
and artificial magnetic anomalies. The optical pumping component
quantum magnetometer provides the measurement of the three magnetic
components. The special circular modulation of the static magnetic
field in the vertical and horizontal planes consequently is used to
detect the magnetic components. The angle between the magnetic vector
and the respective axis is equal to the phase shift between resonance
signal and the modulated voltage in the respective coils. This method
provides high accuracy and sensitivity of the magnetic measurements.
The component magnetometer with this component measurement method has
light weight and dimensions, simple construction.
