Abstract
THE NOVEL MULTI-DIMENSION RESOLVING ACCELEROMETER IS A UNIQUE INERTIAL MEASURING DEVICE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE CARTESIAN COMPONENTS OF APPLIED ACCELERATION. THE DEVICE OPERATION IS AN INNOVATIVE UTILIZATION OF SEMICONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGY COUPLED WITH STRUCTURAL MECHANICS. THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO CONTINUE THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE NOVEL MULTI-DIMENSION RESOLVING ACCELEROMETER, AND TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF THIS DEVICE FOR GUIDED PROJECTILE APPLICATIONS. THE MONOLITHIC CHARACTER OF THE NOVEL MULTIDIMENSION RESOLVING ACCELEROMETER IS A TREMENDOUS ADVANTAGE OVER CURRENT COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE NON-MONOLITHIC DEVICES. THE COMPACT SIZE OFFERED BY THIS LOW PROFILE DEVICE MAY OFFER SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS IN SPACE AND WEIGHT REQUIREMENTS OF MOTION SENSING SYSTEMS. IN ADDITION, EASE OF FABRICATION, LOW COSTS, AND HIGH RELIABILITY MAY BE EXPECTED FROM SUCH MONOLITHIC DEVICES.
