Gyro Test System

This system controls the testing of ring laser gyroscopes.  Gyroscopes are typically used in satellites and other applications where there is zero tolerance for failure.  Each gyro undergoes weeks of testing after manufacturing.  This application allows for the simultaneous processing of 16 gyros.

The system processes over 60 high-speed digital and analog test channels during testing, looking for anomalies such as parameters out-of-specification or missed counts.

The system features:

  • Multi-level event detection
  • User-configurable test conditions
  • High-speed data dumps during events
