Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Gyro (NMRG) is a rate integrating single axis gyro that obtains its rotational information from the dynamic angular motion of atomic nuclei. The gyro is being developed by the Naval Air Development Center as a candidate for utilization as a strapdown sensor because of its potential for high reliability, as well as low acquisition and life cycle costs. Several engineering models have been constructed and are being evaluated at the contractor’s facilities. NMRG performance characteristics have shown improvement over the past several years and indicate the potential for aircraft navigation applications.
