Abstract : A transport system for fragile instruments such as the motion sensors used in aircraft flight controls which are very susceptible to damage during handling, shipment and installation is provided. Individual sensors are mounted on a plate that is suspended inside the permanent housing of the equipment by springs which act as shock-vibration insulators. The housing is spring-isolated in an outer casing for transport, and the plate is permanently secured to the housing at the installation site simply by tightening bolts which extend through the housing.
