This paper discusses the conceptual design considerations and challenges for development of a contactless, mobile, single channel biomagnetic sensor system based on High-Temperature Superconductor @ITS) Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDS) and employing the Three-SQUID Gradiometer (TSG) concept. Operating in magnetically unshielded environments, as areencountered in many medical scenarios, this instrument class would monitor cardiac electrical activity with minimal patient
