 When designing spacecrafts that operate in low earth orbits, a magnetometer is often used as one of the devices for determining orientation (usually supplementing the solar sensors). The magnetometer measures the magnetic field around itself and outputs three components of the magnetic field induction vector in Tesla units. Under ideal conditions, the magnetometer on board the satellite measures the geomagnetic field of the Earth - the very thing that causes a compass needle to rotate for the ground user. However, in real life, the construction of any satellite contains magnetic materials (for example, permanent magnets of electric drives), so the magnetometer measures a certain total magnetic field of the Earth and the magnetic field of the satellite itself - the so-called superposition of fields. When designing spacecrafts that operate in low earth orbits, a magnetometer is often used as one of the devices for determining orientation (usually supplementing the solar sensors).
