This home page provides access to full resolution magnetic field data obtained in the outer magnetosphere and in the solar wind by Prognoz-6.
The Prognoz 6 satellite was launched 22 September 1977 into an orbit with apogee of 200,000 km, perigee of 500 km, and an orbital period of 95 hours.
The data were obtained by an SG-70 fluxgate magnetometer provided by IZMIRAN's Space Magnetic Research Laboratory. The magnetometer had a range of +/- 60 nT and an accuracy of about 0.3 nT. It made one vector measurement every 10.24 sec.
