Modern   systems   for   navigation,   localization   and guidance are increasingly making use of aiding data provided by additional  non-inertial  sensors.  Test  procedures  for  such  hybrid systems often require simultaneous multi-axis motion simulators. It is crucial for this simulator to provide precise angular rate and positioning. 

However,  this  accuracy  can  be  significantly  affected by coupling between axes in case of multi-axis motion. This paper discusses  how  such  coupling  occurs  and  which  methods  may  be implemented  to  mitigate  the  impact  of  this  coupling  in  order  to enhance the motion accuracy. The presented results demonstrate how   an   appropriate   control   strategy   reduces   drastically   the coupling  on  rate  and  position  stability,  allowing  for  improved inertial systems testing.
