Abstract:

General methods and special techniques for testing single degree of freedom gyros have been studied. This report deals with those tests which determine gyro design characteristics, such as damping coefficient, signal generator scale factor, torque generator scale factor, input axis alignment, and others. The tests are designed to be performed on a completed gyro without breaking the seal.
