Results/More Information

During Iskazheniye, information was obtained on the actual magnetic interference during the operation of station service and scientific equipment, and the contribution of ISS RS systems and equipment to the distortion of magnetometer readings with regards to orientation errors was determined.

Based on the experiment results, mathematical models were developed that describe the magnetic interference occurring on the ISS in flight, the Earth's magnetic field, and methods for processing the obtained measurements [data] accounting for disturbances from magnetically hard materials, magnetically soft materials, and current loops.

Based on the obtained data, the mathematical model was created and updated to account for the ISS own magnetic field during various operating modes of its equipment and systems, which facilitated the increase of the station orientation control accuracy.

To date, based on the considerations of the ISS own magnetic field, according to specially developed methods and mathematical models for the current station configuration, the accuracy of orientation control using magnetometers was increased from 14 - 12° to 2 - 1.5° (according to the results of periodical updates of the deviation vector, which increases as the assembly of the ISS goes forward).

Therefore, the results obtained in the Iskazheniye provide additional capabilities for solving flight control issues, experiment planning, and analysis of obtained research results.
