"Gyrostat" in context

A Gyrostat is a mechanical or electrical device that uses gyroscopic principles as means of stabilizing or sensing a particular direction or vector. They are commonly used in aerospace, navigational guidance and robotics applications. A gyrostat works by spinning a heavy wheel in an enclosed housing at a very high rate of speed. This creates a gyroscopic effect that, through a series of gimbals, keeps the gyrostat locked in one direction. Gyrostats are used in a wide variety of tasks, from providing stabilizing control for satellite antennas to maintaining an aircraft's heading during flight.
