Magnetometers are widely used for LEO small satellites attitude determination and control system. In order to estimate satellite dynamics and control attitude accurately, scale factor and bias of magnetometer must be estimated. In this study a linear Kalman filter (LKF) based algorithm for the estimation of magnetometer biases and scale factors is proposed. Proposed algorithms are simulated through attitude dynamics of a small satellite.
Key words: Magnetometer / calibration / Kalman filtering / satellite / attitude determination
