Facility for calibration tests of attitude control sensors

     We carry out calibration tests of attitude determination sensors, among which [there are] Sun sensors, magnetometers and angular velocity sensors. The Sun sensors calibration facility includes a solar radiation simulator and a precision rotary table. The latter can be used for the angular velocity sensors calibration as well. The magnetometer calibration facility includes a ferromagnetic screen and a reference magnetometer.
