Notes:

Originally, these Accelerometers were made at the GEC Avionics Inertial Products Division, located in Plymouth, UK, which became BAE Inertial Products Division. The site was bought out and became Atlantic Inertial Systems in 2007 (and then became several others including UTC due to various buy outs); it is now part of Collins Aerospace. The given size excludes a 7-wire cable (with a 15-way D-type connector); the given weight includes this cable.
The label indicates this accelerometer was intended for the "Z" axis and the sensing direction is marked with an arrow "I↑A" (IA = "Input Axis").
The date is indicated by the "GEC Avionics" which lasted from 1984 to 1992.
