Abstract: The Guidance Technologies Branch (GTB) of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) was contracted by Goodrich Sensors and Integrated Systems (GSIS) to assist them in conducting experimental evaluations of the survivability and performance of a developmental inertial measurement unit (IMU) in the high-g launch and flight environment of gun-launched projectiles. GTB's role, as outlined by the statement of work, was to provide carrier projectiles that would achieve prescribed dynamics and would house the GSIS IMU with a companion transmitter, an additional proven truth standard ARL sensor suite, and collection and transmission hardware for telemetering sensor data throughout planned flight experiments. GTB also performed the experimental design and provided field support to meet the evaluation criteria, satisfy data capture requirements, and obtain post-flight recovery of the test items.
