Abstract : This volume presents a brief survey of the fundamental properties of gyroscopes and their use for the purpose of determining the orientation of a given object (an aircraft, guided missile, etc.) with respect to a certain system of coordinates, which may be fixed or rotating in space in a prescribed manner; the type designations and capabilities of typical differentiating and integrating gyroscopes are examined. Detailed consideration is given to the design, theory, and analytical procedures applied to floating differentiating and integrating gyroscopes, and to certain problems attendant upon their application. The volume contains data pertaining to American floating gyroscopes. The physical bases for inertial navigation systems are outlined briefly. The book is intended for use by engineers working in the field of gyro-mechanism engineering, and may also prove useful to students in the instrument-engineering specialties.
