A typical gyroscope application will incorporate two oil-lubricated open (not sealed) angular contact ball bearings with an oil sump between the bearings.
We were aware that close similarities exist between the nonlinear Euler equations for the gyroscope [(S19) and (S20) in our supplement] and for the nonlinear equations describing a frictionless particle sliding on a rotating sphere [(S32) and (S33)].
Since many stabilization systems require more than one axis of active correction, inertial measurement units (IIVIUs) often include at least three axes of gyroscopes (measuring angular velocity) and three axes of accelerometers (measuring acceleration and angular orientation) to provide the feedback sensing function.

Output of the gyroscope is proportional to angular velocity.
Onboard gyroscopes are helping improve safety-and they're getting smaller and more powerful.
From non gravitational physics we know that if a gyroscope is suspended in frictionless gimbals the result is a parallel transport of its spin direction, which does not help draw any valuable conclusion immediately.

In his latest mission, Noguchi took a ride on the station's robotic arm to replace the malfunctioning gyroscope, which weighs about 280 kilograms, with a new gyroscope the crew brought with them.
The spacecraft flies in a drag-free orbit, which means that the gyroscope rotors are literally in free fall about the Earth, and the spacecraft flies around the gyroscopes.
