Quantifying Uncertainty in Accelerometer Sensitivity Studies
Andrew L. Rukhin, David J. Evans
Key Comparisons of accelerometers sensitivity measurement are performed to compare the sensitivity of linear accelerometers. The key comparison reference value (KCRV) for charge sensitivity as a function of frequency and the accompanying uncertainty are the principal objectives of these studies. In a mixed effects model several methods for evaluation of the vector KCRV and its uncertainty are suggested. A practical remark is that iterated log-scaled frequencies could lead to a better data description than the frequencies themselves.
