MAGSONDE: A Device for Making Angular Measurements on Spinning Projectiles With Magnetic Sensors

Report No. ARL-TR-2310
Authors: Thomas. E. Harkins, David J. Hepner
Date/Pages: December 2000; 29 pages
Abstract: Accurate measurement of angular motion of spinning bodies with on-board sensors has long been recognized as a daunting task. Recent advances in magnetic sensor technologies have yielded devices small enough, rugged enough, and sensitive enough to be useful in systems that make high-speed, high-resolution measurements of attitude relative to magnetic fields when these sensors are installed on free- flying bodies.
