The influence of vibrations, shocks and acoustic noise on MEMS gyro performance is studied. Comparison of characteristics of the gyros with different resonance frequencies (3 and 8 kHz) of the inertial body suspension has revealed the advantage of the sensor with higher resonance frequency. The test results for two modifications of RR-type MEMS gyro developed at CSRI Elektropribor are presented.
