Space Magnetometers

Space magnetometers

Bartington produce magnetic sensors specifically designed for use in the harsh environment of Space. 

They have applications in 

  • Spacecraft attitude sensing
  • Geomagnetic field mapping 
  • Spacecraft magnetic signature measurement.

Spacemag    Intended for long term and interplanetary missions, Spacemag is vacuum compatible and available with 150kRad radiation hardened components. It is assembled to ISO 7 standard, supplied in an aluminium assembly, and is shock and vibration tested to NASA standards. Noise level < 20pTrms/√Hz at 1Hz.


Spacemag-Lite   This is an unpackaged unit specifically designed to be incorporated into CubeSat mini satellites and low Earth orbit (LEO) missions. It features radiation tolerance up to 50kRad, and is constructed using readily-available commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components.
