Abstract

A magnetometric method is proposed for determining the mutual angular position of two objects in space. A system of nonlinear equations that must be solved numerically is introduced. Results are presented from a computer analysis of solutions that are obtained for the system, and a structural diagram of an instrument that was developed is presented together with experimental data from the measurement of angles. It is shown that the proposed system makes it possible to determine the mutual angular position of two objects with a random error of 0.03°.
