Development of countermeasures against infrared and optical guided missiles is enhanced by an ability to quantify the effects of the countermeasure. Analysts must be capable of accurately determining the attitude of the missile throughout its flight. This thesis describes the use of microelectronic-miniature (MEM) technologies to measure the strap down rates experienced by a rolling airframe missile and the model required to effectively determine the missile's attitude during its flight. The Tokin America CG-16D rate sensors and the Honeywell, SSEC, HMC 1002 roll sensor were used in an inertial measurement unit (IMU). The size of the IMU is small and rugged enough to be installed in a small diameter missile. A SIMULINK model is presented that performs the tasks of demodulating the sensors, performing coordinate transformation, and providing animation of the missile attitude for analysis. The model was evaluated for its ability to accurately determine the attitude of the missile based on input from the IMU packages. Sensor data was obtained from testing performed on a CARCO table flight motion simulator, and compared to the ground truth data provided by the CARCO table. Previous research had proved that this model worked for slow- spinning missile (5 Hz in roll). This thesis research expands that research to a fast spinning missile (15 Hz in roll). Through testing, the model was capable of providing solutions within the 2 degrees RMS requirement.
