  2. High Performance Low Integration Cost Magnetometer System

    SBC: A&E INNOVATION            Topic: AF083218

    An innovative data collection and analysis approach is proposed to enable body mount magnetometers for space application. In order to achieve high accurate magnetic field measurement in space, the magnetometer has to be located in a âmagnetically cleanâ place, where the magnetic field from spacecraft is negligible. Usually, the magnetometers are placed on deployable booms, so that the field sens ...
