An Exciting Network Proposal
By Fran Ridge, Coordinator, The MADAR Project

The concept of a UAP detection system owned and operated by a select few has recently been changed to a vision of a world-wide network owned and utilized by anyone interested in serious research of EME phenomena. This might even include geologists and seismologists, but anyone having a computer online would have the MADAR equivalent of digital weather radar.  The advanced warning incorporated into the system could give a skywatch team time to observe and record valuable data. A base unit would be capable of recording the display using a digital to analog converter, as well as having a mode control device to automatically activate other devices. The entire system could be accessed from a cell phone. The fact that there is a similar project already in use for background radiation proves that the concept would work for MADAR III.

The plan:
A member of the MADAR Rapid Response Team is auto-dialed a message to his/her cell phone that says: "This is a MADAR alert, code red. Proceed to your skywatch station with your equipment." Another MADAR team member may received a similar call that says, "This is a MADAR amber alert". Something might be going on, which could be a false alarm or something else worth watching and recording somewhere else in the U.S. (or anywhere in the world). It could also be an advanced warning that an EME event is proceeding in the direction of another team member or skywatch patrol. You quickly power-up your MADAR-III monitor display, or any online computer or cell phone, and google up "MADAR". The site takes you to a screen with live images of sensor locations all over the world but you have selected the United States.  The display refreshes every sixty seconds and the white dots show the base station sensor locations. When there is a deviation in the local magnetic field the white dot with a "zero" in it changes to another number or a red ball. This indicates a geo-magnetic disturbance has occurred. The intensity is measured in counts per minute and the approximate duration is close to the sum of the dots.

Anyone who has a computer online or cell phone could view the larger image, but those with the software and probe at a base station would have their own sensor and could zoom in on any map.

The MADAR-III concept is to have at least three digital magnetometers in use:
1. A small portable digital magnetometer device for field USE similar to the "ghost hunter" K-II device.

2. A base-operated dedicated online RF connected probe (wireless) tied into the MADAR-III Network.
This basic unit would send readings to the MADAR server which would display them on the MADAR screen and provide other data.

3.  Similar to the above but incorporating a controller and power strip outlet module to actuate recorders and other devices automatically.

The probe would be a small device, about the size of a TV remote, that would operate on a 9 volt battery for months or have its own power adaptor. The probe would not need a cord and would be an RF device connected to input jack of a dedicated online computer  The initial device would be an event-type system that would simply detect a change in the local magnetic field and trigger alarms and other equipment. North (or state of rest) would be "0" and any movement would be read as a "1". In the course of a minute the "clicks" (similar to a geiger counter click) would be tallied by the software to create a reading. Each minute the total would change and be updated, but a normal situation would show a "0" at the sensor location. At the same time the computer would be logging the data into a spreadsheet, so that the operator could check the readings for any day or week and print them out. Saving that monthly file would be a good idea and might be done automatically.

Soon after we should be able to display and record the plus or minus 0-360 degree deviation and duration of the disturbance, and autodial a local rapid response team trained to take other equipment, including audio/video cameras and geiger counters to the skywatch areas. 
BTW, with the RN the station pre-selects a value to go over before this happens and anything over 2-1/2 times the normal background is considered significant.) With MADAR III the red dot will remain red until the local disturbance is over.
Connected to each MADAR III, besides the sensor probe, would be a small square powers-strip-like device that will have several 110v outlets on the back. One bank would be "normally off" so that a number of devices can be turned on (data recorders, etc.) and at least one that is "normally on" so that once triggered, a clock timer would be stopped showing the event time. A reset switch would be on the strip somewhere. Lights to show power status (green for normal) and red for alert would on this panel. A pizzo alarm would be located on the front with a switch to turn it off after the device is triggered. Another switch would reset the activated systems.
Each MADAR III would have its own database file.
The RN already has a system like this that works and used all over the world. We can learn from them and we can build and sell these devices. And much cheaper than the $100 software and harness I had to buy and the $350 geiger counter I had to purchase.
