The calibration of Angular Accelerometers requires a controlled test with a known acceleration profile. However, current turn-tables have been designed primarily for generating a constant rotational velocity. To generate a profile with varying angular acceleration we propose using constant rotational velocity on the two axes of a 2-axes motion simulator. The proposed sequence was developed to obtain the required rotational acceleration signal quality using only rotational velocity input. The identified pattern is applied to an envelope of test conditions, resulting in test matrix. This method provides an alternative means to generate inputs that can be used to calibrate angular accelerometers using calibration hardware that is not primarily designed to provide accurate acceleration inputs.
