Abstract

The article discusses the characteristics of measuring chains found in the gimbal inertial navigation systems of the IKW-8 type (used on Su-22 aircraft) are presented. The research paper also addresses the method for the identification of measurement chain properties of the gyroscopic KW-1 platform developed at AFIT, including sensors for the parameters of aircraft motion within an inertial space (linear accelerations and angular velocities) and signal processing systems (used to level and gyrocompass the platform). The methodology for the identification of measurement chain properties developed at AFIT found its application as a complementary technology in the process of assessing the technical condition of an IKW-8 inertial navigation system implemented in the conditions of a military unit operating Su-22 aircraft.
