Abstract:

This report summarizes study and analysis efforts that were directed towards using gyrotechnology to define true north to an accuracy of 2 milliradians in two minutes time in the presence of vibration environments encountered on launch vehicles. It concludes that a device could be fabricated to meet stated requirements by using a design approach that avoids the dynamics problems inherent in all pendulous suspensions for the gyro.
