This paper summarizes results of the pre-statistical manipulation of the Earth magnetic field data received by using the scientific instrument “MAGKOM during the test sample operation of the “AIST”-small spacecraft. Large data-samples were analyzed without in-depth study of some sectors which have been excluded from consideration because of actuating elements and scientific gears operating peculiarities. Some conclusions about the measuring devices operation correctness as well as about the received data key specs have been drawn as part of the study. The way to the future detail metric data analysis has been paved. The performed analysis could be used for the uncontrolled angular motion simulation of the “AIST”-small spacecraft as well as for spacecraft environment microaccelerations estimation.
