Electrostatically Suspended Gyro: History of Development. In Memory of Chief Designer A.S. Anfinogenov.

St. Petersburg, Concern CSRI Elektropribor, JSC, 2011.

    Price: 300 RUR.

The book is dedicated to the memory of A.S. Anfinogenov (1930-2003), honored inventor of the Russian Federation, doctor of sciences, and USSR state prize winner. Being a Chief Designer at Elektropribor, Anfinogenov led the development of a Russian-made electrostatically suspended gyro (ESG). Up till now, ESG remains the most accurate sensor for inertial navigation systems.
The book covers the history of ESG development, design and technical points of development process. Included are articles on ESG and its applications, biography of A.S. Anfinogenov, and memoirs by his friends and colleagues.
