Abstract:

This volume contains the proceedings of the lecture series sponsored by the Guidance and Control Panel of AGARD and presented in Paris in June 1968. The fourteen chapters cover component testing, assembly testing and system testing of gyros, reference platforms, accelerometers and the design of suitable test equipment. The history and economic justification of gyro testing is also discussed, together with an indication of future trends. The effects of design shortcomings and the various types of gas and hydrostatic motor bearings on gyro testing and test specifications are described. The book is concluded by the edited proceedings of a discussion which reveals the testing system philosophy and the test specification and interface problems faced by designers, test engineers, and manufacturers.
