Magnetic field measurements play an important role in space weather and engineering applications of Earth-orbiting satellites, such as attitude determination, momentum management, and scientific instrument pointing. Unless built specifically for high accuracy magnetic measurements (an expensive process), satellites usually come with significant magnetic sources of errors that severely degrade the accuracy with which the Earth’s field can be measured. This study presents innovative algorithms… CONTINUE READING
