Various technologies of a rotational sensor MEMS (Micro Electro-Mechanical System) FOG (Fiber Optic Gyroscope) RLG (Ring Laser Gyroscope) MET (Molecular Electronic Transducers) R-1 R-2 Commercial and aerospace use Observatory stage only to date DC-response Band-pass response 3

Specification and Calibration Self-Noise Level High frequency Low frequency Frequency Response Sensitivity Linearity Cross-effect Linear-rotation Rotation-rotation Nigbor, R. L., J. R. Evans and C. R. Hutt (2009). Laboratory and Field Testing of Commercial Rotational Seismometers, Bull. Seis. Soc. Am., 99, no. 2B, 1215–1227. --- PSD (power spectrum density) --- Allan Deviation R-2 R-1 The R-2 is the second generation of R-1. The R-2 improvements: increased clip level lower pass-band differential output Linearity MHD calibration electronics 4

5
Self-noise (PSD) A good way to test sensor noise at high frequency Noise comparison at high frequency band: MET > FOG > MEMS R-2 does not improve resolution over the R-1. R-1 and R-2 are corrected for instrument response. 5 MEMS FOG MET R-2 R-1

Frequency Response 5 R-1s and 2 R-2s were tested R-2 R-1 Phase response of the R-1 TM is not normalized; these particular R-2s TM are improved. 7

R-1: Aging problem (2 of 2) After a half-year deployment: amplitude differs about +/- 0.5 dB phase differs about +/- 2.5 ∘ 11

12
Conclusions (Calibration) Both R-1 and R-2 can provide useful data, however: R-1 Frequency response is not flat Sensitivity is not normalized Has aging problem (needs regular calibration) Linearity is about 6% (under 8 mrad/s input) R-2 Instrument noise is somewhat higher than the R-1 Sensitivity and frequency response are not normalized The pass-band is flatter than R-1 Linearity is improved (2%, under 8 mard/s input) Self calibration works well at low frequency but not high 12

16
The attitude estimator can … track orientation of sensor frame guide sensor frame from one orientation to another one Ex., plot perpendicular line or parallel line on the ground

17
North Finder ~(find azimuth angle) North-finding is important, especially for: tunnel engineering inertial navigation Missile navigation Submarine navigation seismometer deployment mobile robot navigation North can be found by several techniques: Magnetic compass Sun compass Astronomical GPS compass Gyro compass 17

18
Magnetic compass Advantage : very easy to use Disadvantage : Subject to large error sources from local ferrous material, even a hat rim or belt buckle Need to correct for magnetic declination 18

21
Resolution … Resolution is related to the accuracy of the mean value How much time it takes to determine the mean value with most accuracy?? → Allan Deviation Analysis is the proper way to evaluate accuracy 21
