Standard Specification Format Guide and Test Procedure for Linear Single-Axis, Nongyroscopic Accelerometers
|Publication Date:||23 October 2018|
The specification and test requirements for a linear, single-axis, nongyroscopic accelerometer for use in inertial navigation, guidance, and leveling systems are defined. A standard specification format guide and a compilation of recommended test procedures for such accelerometers are provided. Informative annexes are given on the various types of such accelerometers (force or pendulous torque rebalance with analog or digital output, vibrating beam, and micromechanical) and error effects, on filtering, noise, and transient analysis techniques, and on calibration and modeling techniques (multipoint tumble analysis, vibration and shock test analyses, and geophysical effects in inertial instrument testing).
A standard specification format guide is provided, along with a compilation of recommended test procedures for the preparation of a linear, single-axis, nongyroscopic accelerometer specification. These test procedures are derived from those currently in use in the industry.
This standard consists of five parts: The first two parts are in the normative portion of the standard, and the other three are in the informative portion. Part I is a specification format guide for the preparation of a linear single-axis, nongyroscopic accelerometer specification. Part II is a compilation of recommended procedures for testing a linear single-axis, nongyroscopic accelerometer. Part III contains descriptions of various types of accelerometers. Part IV discusses filtering, noise, and transient analysis. Part V contains calibration and modeling techniques.
