Abstract:

The purpose of this investigation was to determine the response of a pneumatic angular rate sensor with two spherical pickoff elements, and to develop a suitable prototype sensor to be used in further analysis and experimentation. It was found that optimum response is obtained when the spherical elements are located within the sink tube, and that in the development of a suitable prototype, a fluid of relatively high density with low flow rates should be used to minimize system noise while retaining high system response.
