Abstract:
Devices to measure the pitching, yawing, and rolling motion of a projectile from on board and telemeter the measurements to ground receiving stations have been developed. Two of these devices, a solar aspect sensor and an accelerometer, are described in detail. The complete telemetry system with g-hardening to survive gun-launch accelerations is described and techniques for high-g are discussed. The results of several recent flight tests of these yawsondes are presented and show the unique usefulness of the instruments for measuring dynamical behavior of projectiles over their entire flight paths. Hitherto such information has not been available to the shell designer or the aerodynamicist.
