Abstract:

Theoretical and experimental research and development work on the magnetic induction gyroscope during the period 1 Setember 1962 through 30 November 1962 is described. Prior research and development on the magnetic induction gyroscope resulted in the establishment of a nuclear resonant signal utilizing simulated rotation, i.e., the generation of a voltage, dependent upon a simulated rotational velocity, in a suitably located coil. The complete verification of gyroscopic behavior as theoretically predicted requires the use of an actual rotating model. This model was designed, its construction completed early in the quarter, and preliminary simulated rotation experiments were initiated. Simultaneously, additional experiments utilizing the simulated rotation model continued. Activities during the next quarter will be concentrated on the further development of the magnetic induction gyroscope rotating model.
