Description: The specification and test requirements for a linear, single-axis, nongyroscopic accelerometer for use in inertial navigation, guidance, and leveling systems are defined. A standard specification format guide and a compilation of recommended test procedures for such accelerometers are provided. Informative annexes are given on the various types of such accelerometers (force or pendulous torque rebalance with analog or digital output, vibrating beam, and micromechanical) and error effects, on filtering, noise, and transient analysis techniques, and on calibration and modeling techniques (multipoint tumble analysis, vibration and shock test analyses, and geophysical effects in inertial instrument testing).
