Development of New Low-Resource Magnetometers

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Development of New Low-Resource Magnetometers
Traditional space-based magnetometers are deployed on a boom that extends from the spacecraft to reduce exposure of magnetic noise from the spacecraft that could potentially contaminate measurements. This project furthers the development and testing of a new magnetometer designed for CubeSats that does not need a boom. To allow placement of these economical, science-grade instrument magnetometers on and inside the satellite bus instead of on a boom, algorithms are developed that identify and eliminate spacecraft magnetic noise.
