The paper describes the tip responses of a flexible articulated manipulator to a stationary random excitation of the base. The expressions for the covariance tensors of the manipulator tip motion are developed in the base and the inertia frame. The singular value decomposition technique is applied for the derivation of expressions for the principal variances. The principal variances are computed and discussed for a wide range of manipulator configurations and damping coefficients.
