Abstract
This Phase I SBIR project will investigate a method to accurately measure total magnetic fields in the range 0 to 1.6 mT in support of missions to Jupiter. The measurement approach is based on fundamental physical quantities. High sensitivity will be demonstrated, and an upper bound on systematic errors will be determined. The intrinsic heading error will be directly measured. Successful completion of Phase I and Phase II will lead to a compact, fiber-coupled instrument for measuring magnetic fields with high accuracy and precision.
