Navigation guidance systems for missiles, aircraft, ships, and chariots must have speed and position information. In the case of low requirements, people use airspeed meters, Mach number sensors, odometers, etc., but with the performance requirements of the weapon system. Improve, the above instruments can not meet the requirements. The line accelerometer can be installed in a moving object to directly measure its acceleration, and then obtain the speed and position. The measurement accuracy is high and the dynamic performance is good, which is much better than the airspeed meter and the odometer. Therefore, linear accelerometers are one of the most important applications for inertial navigation guidance systems.
