Title: November 2016 HERMES Outdoor Shot Series 10268-313: Free Space Fields and Current Coupling.

Abstract

During the trials during November 2016 at the HERMES III facility, a number of sensors were fielded to measure the free fields and currents coupled to aerial and buried cables. Here, we report on the work done to compensate, correct, and analyze these signals. Average results are presented for selected sets of sensors and prelimi- nary analyses are provided of the time and frequency domain signals. Electric fields were typically on the order of 10 kV/m, magnetic fields were approximately 10 AT, and currents were around 10 A. Several opportunities for improvement are identified including quantification of radiation effects on sensors, higher accuracy compensation techniques, increased sensitivity in differential sensor measurements, and exploration of the use of I-dots in conductivity calculations.
