Abstract : This report presents experimental data obtained by partial simulation of a missile attitude determination system consisting of magnetometers sensing the earth's magnetic field and a sensor responding to the earth's horizon. The contribution of various errors to system error is outlined. A basis is provided for possible future work concerning the affect of on-board interference.
