Not Available The LCPK is a new Army guided missile program based on the venerable 2.75 unguided rocket. Although the guidance scheme is still up in the air, issues with rate sensors on other programs have sparked this SBIR topic. We tell the story of the Predator/MPIM rate sensor issues, analyze the LCPK rate sensor needs as a function of the guidance scheme selection, and propose a test program and isolation mount design for the Endevco Micromachined Accelerometer Gyro (MAG) sensor which should fill the application needs for both linear acceleration and angular rate information. BENEFITS: Everyone is excited about the eventual possibilities of MEMS. This project emphasizes the near term development of a highly accurate miniature inertial sensor.
