The WALI mission as part of the University Nanosatellite Program (UNP) is to launch a nanosatellite into Low-Earth Orbit for comparison of the performance of an electrospray thruster in ground and space operations. A Helmholtz Cage was designed using COMSOL, a Multiphysics simulation software, and constructed to generate and simulate three-dimensional magnetic field conditions at about 400km altitude. An interface that unifies the system via a pc controller is also designed to provide WALI engineers with a user-friendly control mechanism for the cage. Furthermore, the cage can now be employed for any testing that requires a uniform magnetic field below 2.5 Gauss.
