      In pursuit to understanding the flight behavior and characterizing the stability of a flarestabilized projectile, an experiment was conducted to assess the robustness of an inertial sensor suite the size of a dime (17.5mm) by integrating to a telemetry system for recording. The system had to survive launch acceleration exceeding 25,000G’s. This is the beginning of an effort to reduce the size of telemetry systems and diagnostic devices for use in medium caliber munitions and smaller. A description of the telemetry system and subsystem will be presented along with the results.
