Abstract : This report is the internal design concept and development plan for an improved air-bearing gyro (AB-3). This report will also be used as a guide for the in-house development and testing of the AB-3 stabilizing gyro. This design concept is a result of a study conducted by the Army Inertial Guidance and Control Laboratory to develop an advanced inertial platform (ST-323). (Author)
