Abstract : Three Hamilton Standard electrofluidic roll rate sensors were tested to measure their dynamic performance and their sensitivity to rotation about an orthogonal axis. An empirical dynamic mathematical model is derieved for use in computer simulation of ejection seat dynamics. The test data are reported and evaluated. The date were used in part to develop a specification for a three-axis angular rate sensor intended for thrust vector control of an advanced escape system. The predominant dynamic response of this sensor is a transport delay of approximately 5 msec. (Author)
