Abstract : The report describes a general-purpose instrumentation system developed for use in conjunction with the Coriolis Acceleration Platform, a combined linear and angular motion device recently installed at the vestibular research facilities of this activity. The system, based on the use of standard commercially available equipment, provides the basic transducers, signal-conditioning circuitry, and recording instruments required for the acquisition, display, and storage of a wide variety of commonly collected biological and bioenvironmental measurement data.
