Abstract
Accurate measurement of angular motions of spinning bodies with on-board sensors has long been recognized as a daunting task. Recent advances in magnetic sensor technologies have yielded devices small enough, rugged enough, and sensitive enough to be useful in systems making high-speed, high- resolution measurements of attitude relative to magnetic fields when installed on free-flying bodies. Such a measurement system, called a `MAGSONDE' (MAGnetic SONDE), has been designed for use in spinning projectiles for the estimation of in-flight angular orientation with respect to the earth's magnetic field.
