Abstract:

The report is a proposal for the modernization of the Spherical Field Coil Facility, Building 203, at the Naval Ordnance Laboratory. The modernization is directed at instrumenting the facility for the conduct of magnetic tests on large satellite systems for the Naval Research Laboratory. The proposal consists mainly of a description of two major instrumentation systems the magnetic field generation and stabilization system, and the data acquisition and analysis system. A brief description is also included of the coil system, and of the supporting analytic studies. Building 203 is an ideal facility for satellite testing because of the large entrance, the reinforced floor, and the high-quality coil system. Author
