Abstract : A description of a gyro system with two degrees of freedom, and with inclined rotors, which possesses the property of stabilizing itself in an identical way around the axis of revolution of the base as an ordinary gyroscope with two degrees of freedom. The individual movability of each of the gyroscopes on a common base with the presence of its inclinations changing with regard to the axis of rotation. The sign of the value of the measurable angular velocity is taken from one gyroscope. The second gyroscope can be used as a pickup of the angular velocity in the systems of stabilization and automatic control of flying apparatuses or as a cutout of the correction of the gyro instruments. The setting of the pointer on the indicated gyroscopes assures the observation of the position of the axis and the direction of revolution. The instrument will measure the resulting angular valocity of all revolutions the vectors of which line in the plane YOZ. (Author)
