This invention discloses a method for compensating for the disturbance torque on an orbiting satellite (10) from the interference of the earth\s magnetic field lines with particular current loops associated with the satellite (10). The current flow in these current loops on the satellite (10) is measured by a current sensing device (42). A scaling factor (44,46) is applied to the measured currents to derive an estimated disturbance torque in particular axes of the satellite\s attitude. The estimated magnetic disturbance torques are applied, along with ot...
An apparatus for compensating for disturbances on an orbiting satellite, said apparatus being associated with said satellite, said apparatus comprising: actuation means for actuating the satellite in at least one predetermined satellite axis in response to particular satellite attitude compensation control signals; control means for providing the compensation control signals to the actuation means in the at least one predetermined axis, said control means receiving satellite attitude measurement signals from a sensor; a magnetic torque compensation devic...
