Description: Payolads and Space Sciences Department, National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA), Ctra. De Ajalvir km 4, 28850 Torrejón de Ardoz, Spain. The MOURA instrument is a three axes magnetometer and gradiometer equipped with an inclinometer designed and developed for Mars MetNet Precursor mission.

The qualification model (MOURA QM) is devoted to magnetic surveys on Earth with the aim to achieve some experience prior to the arrival to Mars.

In this work it is presented a practical first approach for the calibration of the instrument for these preliminary field campaigns on Earth. Other works will describe the design, up-screening and qualification and full capabilities of the instrument in depth, giving some feedback on the development.
