The purpose of this project was to evaluate the technology associated with the Kearfott Angular Rate Sensor KARS and to verify that it was at a level of development such that a production version could be begun. The four phases of the effort were 1 analysis of operational requirements and their impact on the design 2 Perform design analysis for a design chosen to satisfy the specific set of requirements arrived at 3 Define test requirements and data reduction techniques appropriate to the design and the application and 4 perform various critical subassembly tests. These steps were completed satisfactorily. The following major tasks were also completed A configuration of the KARS satisfying the requirements as set forth by DNA was analyzed and found to be satisfactory A test program was defined and a data reduction technique was analyzed and Various critical subassemblies were built and tested. The results of these tests verified the ability of the design to meet the environmental and performance requirements in the specification.
