Undamped Oscillation of Gyro

In our earlier posts, we discussed about the free gyro, Gyroscope conversion, damped oscillation and its settling period. In this post, we will discuss about undamped oscillation of Gyro. ...

Settling Period of Gyro

In our earlier posts, we discussed about the free gyro, Gyroscope conversion and its damped/undamped oscillations. In this post, we will discuss about Settling period of Gyro. When the compass is settled, the spin axis has a constant ...

Path traced by Gyroscope

The path traced by Gyroscope is elliptical in nature and is finally settled towards the meridian. Lets find out how. Path traced by north end of Gyroscope ...

Displacement type Accelerometer

Displacement type Accelerometer As in the case of normal navigation systems, The Inertial Navigation system is not dependent on the external fields or forces. In place of that, an Inertial Navigation system ...

Strapdown System

Lightweight digital computers permit the system to eliminate the gimbals, creating strapdown system, and are called so because their sensors are simply strapped to the vehicle. In a strapdown inertial navigation system the accelerometers are rigidly mounted parallel ...

Sagnac Effect

Sagnac effect : The Difference in path Length (∆L) is directional proportional to Angular Rotation (ω)....

RLG Sigma 40

RLG SIGMA 40 is an inertial navigation system which is based on Ring laser gyro technology. This system has state of the art technology which is ...

Damped Oscillation

The process of producing damped oscillation of Gyro and its various phases are as follows:By adding an additional weight to the lower part of the Gyro sphere, We can provide it the pendulum ...

Conversion from free Gyro to Gyroscope

Till now we have learned about the free gyro. Now, We will learn how to restrict the free Gyro from drifting and tilting. To do so, We need to address certain issues which plays a significant role in ...

Effect of Earth rotation on gyro

EFFECT OF EARTH ROTATION  ON GYRO AT EQUATOR:- The effect of Earth rotation on Gyro needs to be understood before understanding how it settles to the meridian. Take a case in ...
