Abstract : The effects of acceleration on quartz and atomic frequency sources are reviewed. Guidelines are provided for the specification and testing of oscillator acceleration sensitivities. The discussion includes: steady-state acceleration effects, gravity change effects, shock effects, and vibration effects. The vibration effects section includes: sinusoidal vibration, random vibration, acoustic noise, the effects on short term stability, and spectral responses at other than the vibration frequency.
