Abstract : Provides a suspension mount for a gyro sensor block suspension eliminates dither cross-talk in a gyro triad having a set of common gyros with the same dither tuned suspension. A sensor block has three gyro mount locations situated such that, when attached, the gyro triad is mutually orthonogal to each other. Two of the gyro mount locations have a spring suspension, each of a different stiffness, formed by joining a central hub, to which the gyro is attached, with the sensor block mass via plurality of spikes to form a torsional spring about the gyro dither axis.
