Abstract: Recent mission requirements in the Strapdown Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) field have emphasised the need for inertial sensors which combine the capability of providing precision attitude reference with long mission life. The single-axis hydrodynamic-spin-bearing gyroscope operated with pulse-rebalance servo electronics is a prime candidate sensor for these missions. This paper provides a summary of recent test results and analytical evaluation for a high-performance instrument of this type.
