Abstract : A closed-loop multi-sensor control system for controlling ship signatures at positions away from local sensors used to direct local signatures controllers by controlling a field variable signature through local onboard sensors and active coil elements by determining a transfer matrix between discrete local and midrange field values, said determination being based upon virtual sources, M, and control parameters (coil currents) I.
