Marine Gyrocompasses: Development and Prospects
- 13 Downloads
The paper addresses the history of marine gyrocompasses development in the USSR and Russia. It is noted that despite the development and implementation of attitude and heading reference systems (AHRS), strapdown inertial navigation systems, and satellite compasses (SNS-compasses), the classical gyrocompass of both pendulum and adjustable types is and will be still in demand due to its simple operation and low cost along with the accuracy sufficient for safe navigation; therefore, it will require further development and improvement.
