Completed Technology Project

Project Description

T0015-S Electromagnetic Field Measurements on sRLV

Demonstrated in this study is an instrument suite consisting of modified Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) electric field mill and magnetometer sensors for observing the electromagnetic (EM) environment inside and in the vicinity of suborbital reusable launch vehicles. The initial objective of this experiment is to characterize the electromagnetic field environment inside the spacecraft to understand the potential effects of strong external and internally generated fields on the spacecraft and payloads. Such initial experiments will also demonstrate the feasibility of making future global electric circuit measurements on a routine basis to assess the influence of global change on the Earth’s complex electrical environment.
