Short summary
UAV-borne magnetometry has gradually become an important tool for geophysical studies. However, developing such a UAV-borne aeromagnetometry system is challenging owing to strong magnetic interference introduced by onboard electric and electronic components. One static and two dynamic experiments were conducted to understand the platform's magnetic interference. The results reveal that the strongest magnetic interference is from some current-carrying cables.
