Fluxgate magnetometers are an essential tool for solar-terrestrial research and monitoring or forecasting space weather. They provide high precision measurements of the Earth’s magnetic fields and can be used to infer the currents that transport energy and momentum through the magnetosphere and...
Space-based measurements of the Earth's magnetic field are required to understand the plasma processes of the solar-terrestrial connection which energize the Van Allen radiation belts and cause space weather. This thesis describes a fluxgate magnetometer payload developed for the proposed...
