A Low Susceptibility Proof Mass for a Single Axis Drag Compensation System,
DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The present invention provides certain improvements in the foregoiong single-axis disturbance compensation system, particularly in the proof mass and in the suspension thereof, which improvements minimize coning, tilting, and other undersirable motions of the proof mass as it moves along the current carrying rod, while keeping the proof mass compatible with predetermined design suspension and along track forces. With the foregoing in mind, it is a principle object of the invention to provide, in a single axis drag compensation system of the type described earlier, an improved proof mass and suspension system.
