Abstract : This report discusses recent changes in the Army's method of inertial guidance accelerometer applications in order to correlate performance with system cost and accuracy requirements. A recent study of revised test requirements, methods, and techniques in actual test performances are explained, and the results evaluated and depicted using graphs. The major areas covered are: test instruments, calculation techniques, centrifuge errors, digital test methods, and linearity requirement background. The Army devised a practical, rapid, and low cost system of evaluating analog accelerometer linearity performance. (Author)
