Abstract:

THE ARMY DESIRES INNOVATIVE ALTERNATIVES TO EXISTING ROLL-RATE SENSORS WHICH ARE NOT OPTIMUM FOR USE IN SMART MUNITIONS. WE PROPOSE THE USE OF "FERROFLUIDIC ROLL-RATE SENSORS (FRRS)" WHICH ARE SIMPLE, HAVE MILLIWATT POWER REQUIREMENTS, ARE INHERENTLY RUGGED, WEIGH A FEW OUNCES, AND ARE LESS THAN ONE CUBIC INCH IN SIZE. LABORATORY SENSORS SHOW EXCELLENT LONG TERM STABILITY AFTER DORMANT STORAGE, REPEATIBILITY TO WITHIN ONE PERCENT, AND ROLL RATES BETWEEN 0 DEG AND 3600 DEG/SECOND. PHASE ONE RESEARCH IS NEEDED TO DEFINE THEIR LIMITS AND SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF FURTHER RUGGEDIZING. A CONCEPTUAL SMART MUNITIONS FRRS ROLL-RATE SENSOR DESIGN WILL BE PROVIDED FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF AN ARMY MODULARIZED AND ELECTRICALLY STANDARDIZED ROLL-RATE SENSOR IN PHASE TWO. EXTENSIVE MILITARY AND COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS OF THE FRRS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED.
