Abstract:

A PROGRAM WAS INITIATED TO ASSURE THE AVAILABILITY OF 10 TO THE 7TH POWER GYRO SPIN AXIS BEARINGS TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF AN INERTIAL GUIDANCE SYSTEM. This was to be accomplished by improving the bearing life and capability to reproduce. The program goals of 80 acceptability through a life of 5000 hours were achieved by an improvement in design details. Functional testing indicates that these bearings may operate successfully in the gyro. Author
