The Lance TIP program was initiated as a prequalification evaluation of the Sundstrand accelerometer to determine its availability as a second source to the MIS 13227C requirements for the Lance missile. Improvements in the Sundstrand accelerometer design, incorporating the basic Q-Flex sensor were required in several areas to establish a low cost, dependable volume production capability for the Lance application. It is concluded that the Lance TIP program was completely and extremely successful. Despite unforseen electronics problems, the hardware was built and formal verification tests were completed on schedule. This success allowed the state of the formal production qualification to make possible timely flight qualification for the Lance missile.
