Abstract: A SYSTEM IS DESCRIBED in which a strapdown a-sensor magnetometer is used in conjunction with an inertial reference (such as a vertical gyro), to provide an indication of magnetic heading independent of aircraft attitude. The system eliminates the need for stable or pendulous mountings such as were used with previous azimuth detectors.
