IEEE Standard Specification Format Guide and Test Procedure for Nongyroscopic Inertial Angular Sensors: Jerk, Acceleration, Velocity, and Displacement

A guide is presented for the preparation of a specification and test procedure for an inertial angular sensor that provides a common meeting ground of terminology and practice for manufacturers and users of an array of sensors that have been developed to meet needs not easily met by traditional spinning-rotor gyroscopes. A test procedure for verifying that the specifications have been met is given. The standard is not intended to compete with existing standards for specific devices with highly specific models and error sources, such as spring-restrained rate gyros, but to provide a uniform guide for those inertial angular sensors that have not been covered elsewhere.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.


Standard for Specifying and Testing Coriolis Vibratory Gyros

This standard defines requirements and test procedures for a single-axis Coriolis vibratory gyro (CVG) for use as a sensor in attitude control systems, angular displacement measuring systems, and angular rate measuring systems. Informative annexes cover CVG design features and theoretical principles of operation.

Recommended Practice for Precision Centrifuge Testing of Linear Accelerometers

This recommended practice describes the conduct and analysis of precision tests for linear accelerometers using centrifuge techniques. The term “precision,” in this context, refers to tests that are conducted to evaluate accelerometer parameters, as opposed to tests conducted to establish environmental survivability only. Evaluation may take the form of determining the coefficients of the accelerometer's model equation, except for bias and scale factor, which are most accurately determined by static multiposition tests. Alternatively, evaluation may establish only that the accelerometer output complies with specific error limit criteria.

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.

No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
