Abstract : This report describes the investigations of charged particle accelerometers conducted by Martin-Orlando. The purpose of this program is to develop a charged particle accelerometer capable of sensing linear acceleration. The effort consisted of: 9(1) evaluation of chamber material on linearity for a three-axis modulated carrier accelerometer; (2) evaluation of heat from light source on internal acceleration; (3) evaluation of photoconductive cells for a dc accelerometer; (4) insertion of particles in a vacuum; and (5) preliminary evaluation on a digital force balance loop.
