Since 1962, USD has designed and built form, fit and function equivalents
to the Honeywell, AIS, Humphrey, Goodrich, BAE, Condor Pacific, Northrop and Timex families of rate
and rate integrating gyroscopes. We have manufactured over 100 different models
for the U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Thales and many
others with excellent field history. They are currently used in programs that
cover the performance and environmental requirements typically encountered
by aircraft, missiles, vehicles, ships and tanks. Applications include attitude
control, aided navigation, heading and attitude reference, antenna and seeker
stabilization, mid-course guidance, and turret and sight stabilization. They
are currently used in a great number of major U.S. military and foreign programs
such as F14, F15, F16, F18, A6, Tow Cobra, Phalanx and Standard Missile.
In addition to manufacturing new gyroscopes, USD also performs complete overhaul
and repair to the Honeywell GG1111 gyros bringing them back to new
build performance and specifications.
