The Solar Probe Plus FIELDS experiment will observe turbulent magnetic fluctuations deep in the inner heliosphere. The FIELDS magnetometer suite implements a set of three magnetometers: two vector DC fluxgate magnetometers (MAGs), sensitive from DC- 100Hz, as well as a vector search coil magnetometer (SCM), sensitive from 10Hz-50kHz. Single axis measurements are additionally made up to 1MHz. To study the full range of observations, we propose merging data from the individual magnetometers into a single dataset. A merged dataset will improve the quality of observations in the range of frequencies observed by both magnetometers ( 10-100 Hz). Here we present updates on the individual MAG and SCM calibrations as well as our results on generating a cross-calibrated and merged dataset.
