In-flight Calibration Methods Used for the Rsted Mission

  author={Nils Olsen and Torben Risbo and Peter Brauer and Jose M. G. Merayo and Fritz Primdahl and Terry Sabaka},
There are two di erent principles for calibrating a magnetometer: In a vector calibration the output of the vector magnetometer (to be calibrated) is compared with the (known) magnetic eld vector which is applied to the instrument. The problem of an inight vector calibration is of course that the applied magnetic eld vector is in principle unknown. In a scalar calibration only the intensity of the magnetic eld is used, but not its direction. However, the scalar intensity is known from the… CONTINUE READING
