Abstract:

The possibility of obtaining a geographically oriented accelerometer platform with a natural oscillation period of 84.4 min is examined in the first approximation. The influence of gyroscope drift on the motion of a gyrostabilized platform and an accelerometer platform is studied, and errors in the determination of the coordinates of a moving object generated by drift of the reference coordinate system are derived. The study is conducted under the assumption that ideal elements are used in the system with the exception of t e floating gyroscopes, i.e., those not having inherent instrumental and design errors to them.
