Paper Abstract

Advanced in inertial guidance testing place increasing demands upon accuracy, resolution, and response of motion- based test table and simulators. These test tables are typically controlled via closed-loop servomechanisms utilizing precision axis position transducers (e.g. Inductosyns, resolvers, optical encoders, etc.) to measure axis motion. A new method of acquiring data from these transducers provides greater resolution, repeatability, and accuracy of axis position measurements, enabling more precise control of the axis.
