On January 10, 2013, technicians at Lockheed Martin Space Systems in Littleton, Colo. put the MAVEN spacecraft through a Magnetic Swing Test in order to capture the magnetic signature of the spacecraft.
Test engineers swing the vehicle on the x and y-axis and compare the data to a model of the magnetic field of the spacecraft. Verifying the model will make the MAVEN magnetometer instrument more precise when collecting science at Mars.
