CCE Magnetometer (MAG)

NSSDCA ID: 1984-088A-05

Mission Name: AMPTE/CCE
Principal Investigator:Mr. Brian Jay Anderson

Description

The instrument was a triaxial fluxgate magnetometer mounted on a 2.4-m boom. It had seven automatically switchable ranges (from plus and minus 16 nT to plus and minus 65,536 nT) with resolution commensurate with a 13-bit A/D converter, and was read out at 8.6 vector samples/s. The signals from two sensors (one parallel to the spin axis and one orthogonal) were also fed into 5-50 Hz bandpass channels that were read out every 5 s. For more details, see T. A. Potemra et al., IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, v. GE-23, p. 246, 1985.
