Abstract
THE PURPOSE OF THIS INVESTIGATION IS TO ENHANCE THE CAPABILITIES AND IMPROVE THE INFORMATION RETURN FROM ACCELEROMETERS USED IN MICROGRAVITY APPLICATIONS. RATHER THAN IMPROVE THE ACCELEROMETER SENSORS THEMSELVES, THE INVESTIGATION IS DIRECTED TOWARDS USING RECENT ADVANCES IN MICROPROCESSOR TECHNOLOGY AND SYSTEM DESIGN TECHNIQUES TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF INNOVATIVE METHODS TO IMPROVE: 1. SENSOR CALIBRATION AND TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION; 2. ONLINE DATA DISPLAY AND ANALYSIS; AND 3. DATA REDUCTION AND INFORMATION STORAGE. A FOURTH OBJECTIVE IS TO COMBINE RESULTS FROM THE ABOVE THREE AREAS OF INVESTIGATION IN AN INTEGRATED DESIGN FOR A SPACEFLIGHT MICROGRAVITY ACCELEROMETER PACKAGE.
