Description: This standard was prepared by the Gyro and Accelerometer Panel of the Aerospace Electronics Systems Group of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. It consists of two parts. Part I is a specification format guide for the preparation of an accelerometer specification. It provides a common meeting ground of terminology and practice for manufacturers and users. Part II is a compilation of recommended procedures for testing an accelerometer. These procedures, including test conditions to be considered, are derived from those currently in use. For a specific application, the test procedure should reflect the requirements of the specifications; therefore, not all tests outlined in this document need be included, nor are additional tests precluded. In some cases, alternative methods for measuring performance characteristics have been included or indicated.
