Type
   Type      The technology used to sense the angular / rotary rate.
   Your choices are...         
   Optical       Optical gyros permit the reflection of a laser ray many times within an enclosure. If the enclosure rotates, the duration between the moment of laser emittance and eventual reception is different. With ring laser gyros (RLF), the laser reflection is achieved with mirrors inside the enclosure. With fiber optic gyros (FOG), the laser reflection is achieved with a coil of optical fiber. The laser emitter deteriorates over time, however, and the fiber is fragile and has a limited life.  
   Spinning Mass       Spinning mass gyros use a steadily-moving mass with a free-moving axis (gimbal). They are very fragile and require regular maintenance. When a spinning mass gyro is titled, the gyroscopic effect causes precession – motion orthogonal to the direction tilt sense – along the axis of the rotating mass, indicating that the angle has moved. Because mechanical constraints cause numerous error factors, the axis of a spinning mass gyro is usually fixed with springs. Spring tension is proportional to the precession speed.  Dry-tuned gyros or dynamically-tuned gyros are spinning mass gyros that are designed to cause very small mechanical constraints once the spinning speed reaches the specified speed. A dynamically-tuned gyro should not be confused with a gyrocompass, a large spinning-mass device that is made to rotate and maintain the same direction as the earth’s rotation. Gyrocompasses provide true north readings at all times, whereas dry-tuned gyros provide information about the relative change of angles. 
   Vibrating       Vibrating gyros use micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) technology and a vibrating, quartz tuning fork to measure Coriolis force. When rotated, a vibrating element (vibrating resonator) is subjected to the Coriolis effect, causing secondary vibration orthogonal to the original vibrating direction. By sensing the secondary vibration, the gyro can detect the rate of turn. Some vibrating gyros are called piezo, ceramic, or quartz gyros because they use the piezo-electric effect to exert and detect vibration. Note, however, that vibration and detection do not necessarily use the piezo effect. Most piezo, ceramic, and quartz gyros are mass-produced and require little maintenance. Products that use a tuning fork or beam-shaped (often triangular) vibrating element with solid support to the base or case may not be able to distinguish between secondary vibration and external vibration. Dumpers that affect rotational motion only worsen the gyro’s response. As a result, some suppliers use a ring-shaped element that is suspended by spokes and vibrates up and down in a squeezed, oval-shaped motion. With this design, external vibration does not cause the squeezed, oval vibration mode. The lateral-only suspension from the surrounding spokes protects the element from linear vibrations and shocks regardless of how the gyro is strapped down to the base.

Degrees-of-freedom
   Angular / Rotary Axes      Angular axes may be referred to as yaw, pitch, and roll.  Yaw is rotation about the normal axis (the axis perpendicular to the pitch and roll axes).  Pitch is rotation around the lateral or transverse axis. This axis is parallel to the wings, thus the nose pitches up and the tail down, or vice-versa. Roll is rotation around the longitudinal axis: an axis drawn through the body of the vehicle from tail to nose. This is also known as bank.
   Your choices are...         
   Uniaxial       Uniaxial units sense the angular rate around a single axis. 
   Biaxial       Biaxial units sense the angular rate around two orthogonal (perpendicular) axes. Two-axis rate sensors may consist of two single-axis gyros that are packaged together.  
   Triaxial       Triaxial units sense the angular rate around three orthogonal (perpendicular) axes. Three-axis rate sensors may consist of three single-axis gyros that are packaged together.

Angular Rate Specifications
   Angular Rate Range       Angular rate range is the maximum rotary rate for which the gyro is rated. If one product or series can be configured for different rates, then the range of maxima is listed. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Linearity       Angular linearity or rotary axis linearity is measured over an operating temperature range as a percentage (±) of full scale. It is sometimes referred to as linearity, non-linearity, or accuracy. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Bandwidth       Angular bandwidth is the frequency range over which the device meets accuracy specifications before rolling off. Because gyros are almost always capable of DC response, only the high-frequency 3-dB roll off point is included. This search returns only those devices with a roll off frequency that exceeds the requirements. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   Angular Transverse Sensitivity       Angular transverse sensitivity is the maximum output signal due to rotation about an axis orthogonal to the sensitive axis under consideration. It is expressed as a percentage of the orthogonal input angular velocity. Angular transverse sensitivity is a measure of imperfection. A perfect gyro would be insensitive to rotation in a direction exactly orthogonal to the sensitive direction, but no device is perfect.  
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Bias Stability       Bias stability is the angular error or drift over time at a constant temperature. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Random Walk       Random walk is the noise value for the angular rates. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Rate vs. Rate-integrating Gyro       
   Your choices are...         
   Rate Gyro       Rate gyros are generally single degree-of-freedom (SDOF) devices with a primarily elastic restraint of the spin axis about the output axis. The output signal is produced by precession of the gimbal, which is proportional to the angular rate of the case about the input axis. Most modern gyroscopes are rate gyros. 
   Rate-integrating Gyro       Rate-integrating gyros are generally single degree-of-freedom (SDOF) devices with a primarily viscous restraint of the spin axis about the output axis. The output signal is produced by precession of the gimbal, which is proportional to the integral of the angular rate of the case about the input axis. 
   Search Logic:      Products with the selected attribute will be returned as matches. Leaving or selecting "No Preference" will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Weight       The overall weight of the unit.
