Title: Development and Terrestrial Applications of a Nano-g Accelerometer
Authors: Hartley, F.
Issue Date: 29-Oct-1999
Citation: SPIE, Design Characterization and Packaging for MEMS and Micro Electronics

Abstract: The ultra-sensitive accelerometer, developed for NASA to monitor the microgravity environments of Space Shuttle, free orbitors and Space Station, needed to measure accelerations up to 10mg with an absolute accuracy of 10 nano-g (10***sup-8***g) for at least two orbits (10***sup4*** seconds)to resolve accelerations associated with orbital drag.
