Abstract:

The 3He nuclear gyroscope is a single species cryogenic device which can be instrumented as a three degree of freedom gyroscope. Sensitivities to dynamic terms can be molded, measured, and compensated by generation of cross axis magnetic fields. The magnetic field generation scheme is the equivalent of putting the gyro on a stabilized platform but requires no moving parts. Such a gyroscope would be most useful integrated with other cryogenic instruments in a high accuracy all cryogenic inertial measurement unit. Keywords include cyrogenic inertial instruments inertial navigation nuclear gyroscope and guidance and control.
