Unlike RADAR, MADAR doesn't have a "range" or send out a signal that bounces off UAPs. MADAR is an intricate device that looks for and reports on anomalistic variations in the geomagnetic field. This is determined by the UAP, and probably the size and power output of the UAP, possibly what the phenomena is doing and why. Consider the following UAP examples that may produce disturbances or geomagnetic anomalies at various levels: 1) Small, probe-like objects, reported throughout UFO history, that operate similar to today's "drones". One would think that the E-M from one of these would be quite small. 2) Then we have the more common-sized objects, many of which were described as "flying saucers" for half a century, about 30' in diameter. The E-M field generated to power a craft of this size is probably the same as the object that Project SIGN studied. 3) Large objects, possible mother ships or transports. These would seem to require either much more power and E-M or a different power source altogether.

How could UAP's affect MADAR? UAPs either produce a field that is
a) omnidirectional with intensity varying by the inverse cube of the distance,
b) omnidirectional with intensity linked to the application of and rated by applied power,
c) directional (propulsion) or a directed beam (stalking phase in an abduction attempt?).
d) powerful enough to distort the earth's weak geomagnetic field in such a way as to create anomalies for many, many miles.

Any of these could represent the activity of more than one object in a small area or even a larger region! As Dr. James Harder told the congressional committee in 1968, UFOs often travel in pairs. The closest event could occur without a witness but be picked up by MADAR, while the other may be seen by witnesses or tracked by radar miles away. We already have this type of evidence, verified and unverified. What we are seeking is a local event, witnessed by the operator with additional hand-held equipment, or an exceptional witness not far from the MADAR site.

MADAR now has 62 devices in various stages of deployment, with 43 running, 8 in foreign countries
The latest is Node 151 at Estes Park, Colorado, operated by Eric Calkins. Prior to that two devices went online in Switzerland. Roger Spinner (149) and Jochen Richert (150).
