Abstract:

The Sundstrand Q-Flex Accelerometer has undergone a short-term investigation to provide information for assessing the applicability of this accelerometer for strapdown inertial navigation systems. The investigation included tests to determine model equation coefficients, and stability of the coefficients as a function of time and the sensitivity of the instrument to changes in environment. Particular emphasis was placed on the determination of thermal characteristics.
