The data obtained by the vibration platform could hardly have a big sample size and a typical probability distribution. To overcome this problem, the authors in this paper present a new statistical induction method of bootstrap sampling under the vibration environment of the airborne platform. The bootstrap method is used to imitate distribution of some systems by resample operation in the case of unknown probability with small sample. This method is also applied in the data analysis for a platform vibration environment. The calculation results indicate this method with a high reliability at a given confidence level by the experiment.© (2010) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering.
