The tested prototype matches the orbiting magnetometers that will be delivered to ESA by the end of 2010.
AlwaysReady and its technologies will have a number of exceptional advantages in its two initial products: a "smart" nanobattery capable of producing current on demand after long term storage, as well as a family of uncooled magnetometers, including ultra sensitive versions capable of hundreds of times' improvement in sensitivity over currently available designs.
Steven Duckett, president and CEO of Geometrics, commented, "Geometrics has maintained its leadership in developing new magnetic sensing technology since its founding over 25 years ago and is looking forward to continuing this leadership through its relationship with Conductus to develop new geophysical applications for superconducting magnetometers.
For this reason, we have chosen to compartmentalize our smart nanobattery and magnetometer activities into an independent company and to devote significant resources to their manufacturing and deployment.
The magnetometer is located near Corralitos, a remote area about 7 kilometers from the epicenter of the magnitude 7.
Based on the success of our nano battery video posted on You Tube last week, we will release a video today to explain our magnetometer project so investors will better understand the nature of our technology," said mPhase Technologies, Inc.

Research Will Evaluate Military Uses of the Nanobattery and Magnetometer
During 2006, a second pass was completed which included acoustic and magnetometer data-streams which helped Odyssey create a larger database of information.
The magnetic field measurements were done with a SQUID (superconducting quantum interference device) magnetometer.
