  • Geomagnetic Experiment on SAC-A

    The vector magnetomer on board of the Argentine Technological demonstration satellite SAC-A measured the magnetic field components every 16 seconds. The magnetometer was inside the satellite (NO BOOM) and the measurements are contaminated by the satellite itself. An on-board GPS provided matching positional measurements. Attitude solutions from the GPS are also provided but only for a limited part of the data set, restricting the usefulness of the data to only intensity in the remaining parts.
