Magnetic Calibration System With Interference Compensation

  title={Magnetic Calibration System With Interference Compensation},
  author={Michal Jano{\vs}ek and Michael Dressler and Vojtěch Petrucha and Andrey Chirtsov},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Magnetics},
This paper describes a novel method for calibrating dc-precise magnetometers in the low field range ( $\pm 100~\mu \text{T}$ ), which gives acceptable results even in laboratory conditions with significant magnetic interference. By introducing a closely mounted reference magnetometer and a specific calibration procedure, it is possible to compensate for the external magnetic field disturbances caused, e.g., by the local transportation operated with dc power supplies. The field compensation…

AMR Magnetometer With Digital Feedback for Space Applications

A novel concept of a digitally compensated, low-noise magnetometer based on anisotropic magnetoresistance sensors that is suitable for space applications is presented, keeping costs manageable even for low-budget CubeSat missions.

Interference-Compensating Magnetometer Calibration With Estimated Measurement Noise Covariance for Application to Small-Sized UAVs

Results of experiments performed using a real unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) demonstrate that the proposed calibration scheme compensates well for the disturbing magnetic interference arising from the UAV's onboard current and hence reduces the estimation error of its yaw angle, or its heading direction, by approximately two-thirds of that obtained using the existing scheme.
