Abstract:

The purpose of the contract was to improve the performance of the INCOFLEX Trademark accelerometer design and develop torquing electronics with a digital output and build and test one 2 axis and one 3-axis version of the accelerometer. Performance improvement in the long term bias stability and torquer efficiency parameters and determination of the best method of reduction of the scale factor temperature sensitivity were goals of the program. The long term bias stability was improved considerably, and the torquer design optimized as far as possible within the constraints of the design requirements. Binary, ternary and analog with-conversion-to-digital electronics were built and all three methods operated successfully with the INCOFLEX accelerometer. A three axis version of the accelerometer was built with analog electronics packaged as part of the unit. A two axis version was built and delivered with separate electronics that can torque the accelerometer in the binary, ternary or analog-with-conversion-to-digital modes. Author
