Abstract
THERE HAS BEEN LITTLE, IF ANY, DEVELOPMENT IN RECENT YEARS IN THE AREA OF MECHANICAL SHOCK (MS) SENSORS, ESPECIALLY SENSORS WITH HIGH FREQUENCY AND HIGH-G RESPONSE. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THROUGH THE USE OF LITERATURE SOURCES AN ASSESSMENT BE MADE OF THE STATE-OF-THE-ART IN MS SENSORS AND OF THE IMPROVABILITY OF THE MOST ADVANCED DEVICES TO EXTEND THEIR FREQUENCY AND DYNAMIC RANGE. IT IS ALSO PROPOSED THAT THEORETICAL STUDIES BE CONDUCTED ON THE RESPONSE OF MAGNETIC, HEAT SENSING, PYROTECHNIC AND ABLATIVE MATERIALS TO SHOCK AND THAT EXPLORATORY TESTS BE CONDUCTED ON PROMISING SYSTEMS.
