Abstract : A simple vertical reference capable of high accuracy, in a limited speed range, and during continuous turning maneuvers was required. Four instruments were tested, using the light reflection method. Two of these were sp cial modifications for this purpose. Of these, it is concluded that the T4101 type gyro, as modified for AIL by the substitution of two single axis electrolytic sensors for previous vertical sensor, was the best instrument for this and similar applications.
