Specification Format Guide and Test Procedure for Single-Axis Laser Gyros
|Publication Date:||30 March 2006|
This standard defines the specification and test requirements for a single-axis laser gyro for use as a sensor in attitude control systems, angular displacement measuring systems, or angular rate measuring systems, including the electronics necessary to operate the gyro and to condition the output signals.
This standard provided a common meeting ground of terminology and practice for manufacturers and users. The user is cautioned not to overspecify-only those parameters that are required to guarantee proper instrument performance in the specific application should be controlled. In general, the specification should contain only those requirements that can be verified by test or inspection. Part II of this standard can also be used as a guide in the preparation of a separate laser gyro test specification. In general, the intent is for the specification writer to ensure consistency and traceability between Part II test procedures and Part I requirements for performance, mechanical, electrical, environmental, and quality assurance.
