What are Vyro and Sahrs sensors? What are Vyro and Sahrs sensors? vorwald (Aerospace) (OP) 10 Aug 01 14:03 What do vyro and sahrs sensors measure? RE: What are Vyro and Sahrs sensors? rikman (Aerospace) 14 Aug 01 03:33 VYRO is a GE trade name for a sensor to detect angular rates (sort of a solid-state gyro)I'm not sure about SAHR - the only reference I know of is to the Self Aligning Head Restraint used in some autos; I don't know if this makes sense in your case.Hope this is of some help,RIKMAN RE: What are Vyro and Sahrs sensors? vorwald (Aerospace) (OP) 15 Aug 01 09:57 After further searching, I found the following definations for Sahars and Vyro. Does anyone have more info on Sahrs? Sahrs = Standard Attitude Heading Reference System Vyro Dr. Stephen W. Tehon successfully applied piezo- electronic technology to vibrating angular rate sensors used on aircraft, line of sight camera stabilizers for camcorders, and rotating detectors for automotive anti-skid systems. He is a pioneer in the development of vibrating angular ratesensors, generally called piezo-gyros. In 1970, he received a patent for a vibrating bar, angular rate sensor, while he was at the GE Electronics Lab, in Syracuse. The immediate use was to the improved control of military aircraft. The vibrating bar piezo-gyro eliminated the bearings and suspension required for the conventional wheel gyro. GE subsequently manufactured the Tehon piezo-gyro (renamed the VYRO) in central New York. They are now used in military aircraft such as the A-10 Wart-Hog and the V- 22 tilt-rotor aircraft. Consumer applications include stabilizing video camcorders, rotation detectors for automobile anti-skid systems, and stabilizing antennas on moving vehicles.
