Angular velocities were calculated as the numerical time integral of the angular accelerometer data.
A CFC1000-capable angular accelerometer does exist (K-Shear[R] 8838/8840, Kistler Instrument Corporation, Amherst, NY), however it is approximately four times larger and six times more massive on a per-channel basis than a comparable angular rate sensor.
