Wave Solid-State Gyroscopes of Russian Design for Aircraft Onboard Systems


This paper considers wave solid-state gyroscopes with volumetric resonators operating in the mode of angular velocity sensors for onboard control systems and flight safety. The results of laboratory bench tests of wave solid-state gyroscopes with metal cylindrical and silicon ring resonators are presented. Possibilities of their use in aircraft onboard systems are indicated.
