Abstract

Time series of processed, cleaned attitude readings in quaternion format of the two boom-mounted 'ASC' star sensors of the 'LEO' satellite 'CHAMP', describing the satellite system attitude in respect to the celestial background. The nominal time resolution of the time series in the 'ASCII'-file listing is 1 Hz.

The full product and format descriptions are provided in the associated Scientific Technical Report - Data 19/10 (GFZ Section 2.3, 2019. http://doi.org/10.2312/GFZ.b103-19104).

Additional Information

CHAMP (CHAllenging Minisatellite Payload) was a German small satellite mission for geoscientific and atmospheric research and applications, managed by GFZ . With its highly precise, multifunctional and complementary payload elements (Overhauser scalar magnetometer (OVM) and Fluxgate vector magnetometer (FGM), accelerometer, star sensor (ASC), GPS receiver, laser retro reflector, ion drift meter) and its orbit characteristics (near polar, low altitude, long duration) CHAMP generated highly precise gravity and magnetic field measurements simultaneously for the first time and over a 10 years period. CHAMP launched by a Russian COSMOS launch vehicle on July 15, 2000 and an initial altitude of 454 km. The mission ended on September 19, 2010, after ten years, two month and four days, or after 58277 orbits.

        • description (descriptionType=Other): CHAMP (CHAllenging Minisatellite Payload) was a German small satellite mission for geoscientific and atmospheric research and applications, managed by GFZ . With its highly precise, multifunctional and complementary payload elements (Overhauser scalar magnetometer (OVM) and Fluxgate vector magnetometer (FGM), accelerometer, star sensor (ASC), GPS receiver, laser retro reflector, ion drift meter) and its orbit characteristics (near polar, low altitude, long duration) CHAMP generated highly precise gravity and magnetic field measurements simultaneously for the first time and over a 10 years period. CHAMP launched by a Russian COSMOS launch vehicle on July 15, 2000 and an initial altitude of 454 km. The mission ended on September 19, 2010, after ten years, two month and four days, or after 58277 orbits.

      • Summary
        • Abstract: Time series of processed, cleaned attitude readings in quaternion format of the two boom-mounted 'ASC' star sensors of the 'LEO' satellite 'CHAMP', describing the satellite system attitude in respect to the celestial background. The nominal time resolution of the time series in the 'ASCII'-file listing is 1 Hz. The full product and format descriptions are provided in the associated Scientific Technical Report - Data 19/10 (GFZ Section 2.3, 2019. http://doi.org/10.2312/GFZ.b103-19104).
