The paper examines the performance of a new two axis dynamically tuned gyroscope. Two types of feedback loop are described. In the first design the control force maintains the sensitive element in a near null position and provides a direct measure of the applied rate. Errors arising because of mistuning and damping are evaluated. The second design is constructed using regulator theory and the performance of the gyro is shown to be robust with respect to the parameters defining the gyro and its control system.
