Short summary
This paper presents a novel method for locating magnetic interference sources on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) destined for aeromagnetic surveys. The technique is demonstrated in an indoor laboratory, whereas most magnetic mapping has previously been done outdoors, and is performed on four different types of UAS with their motors engaged. Sources are discussed on each UAS platform but can also be used as a point of reference for typical components that cause interference.
