Abstract:

The purpose of this study and analysis is to employ more sophisticated gyro gimbal pickoff component technology to replace existing pickoff designs. The existing wide gyro pickoffs experience gimbal wiring and slipring torques, potentiometer wiper lift off during flight environment, noise, increased friction, and assembly cost. The goals of this study are to gain a better understanding of the pickoff error mechanism and to utilize the major advances in component development, materials, and manufacturing techniques as applicability to the design of inertial instruments.
