|Within Vocab||SeaVoX Device Catalogue|
|Alternative Labels||Raytheon MF 30|
|Definition||A maintenance-free gyrocompass and attitude reference system, designed for use as a navigation aid on board ships. It utilises Hemispherical Resonator Gyroscope (HRG) technology, whereby a single angular rate vibrating resonator is located inside a miniature hemisphere with the electronics for vibration sensing, decoupled from outside equipment. The MF 30 can be used standalone or as part as a heading management system, which would allow integration of up to four compasses (up to three gyrocompasses, or two gyrocompasses and a GNSS THD, plus a magnetic compass). It is capable of automatic correction of magnetic heading by deviation and variation. It has a heading accuracy of 0.25 degrees secLat RMS, and a roll and pitch accuracy of 0.2 degrees RMS. It can operate in temperatures from -20 to +60 degC. Permissible roll and pitch angle for full accuracy is +/- 60 degrees.|
