Applications of Rate Gyros
This chapter presents some of the foremost applications of rate gyros and other forms of angular rate sensors in flight control, guidance, and automatic navigation systems. In the following description and analysis, the effects of imperfections on overall system performance are presentedm, especially those due to dynamical errors, noise, offsets, and resolution.
