A Software-Based Calibration Technique for Characterizing the Magnetic Signature of EUTs in Measuring Facilities
In this paper, a software-based stochastic approach for calibration purposes in measuring facilities is introduced. The algorithm of the calibration procedure is tested with simulation analysis and evaluated with real measurements in a facility with two magnetometers. The results validate that the algorithm can accurately predict the actual positions of the magnetometers, making the multiple dipole model prediction more accurate and enabling the precise extrapolation of the magnetic field. This study illustrates the importance of the calibration process verification tests for equipment having magnetic cleanliness requirements in space missions.
