This is a sensor for lateral acceleration driving into the CSAS. A yaw rotation is a movement around the yaw axis of the aircraft that changes the direction it is pointing, to the left or right of its direction of motion. The yaw rate or yaw velocity of the aircraft is the angular velocity of this rotation, or rate of change of the heading angle when the aircraft is horizontal. It is commonly measured in degrees per second or radians per second. The Accelerometer is located as near to the centre of gravity of the aircraft.
