This item is a Displacement Gyro from the Space Reference Unit of the Naval Compass NCS 1. A Displacement Gyro measures displacement from an initial datum and gives an output in degrees. The date of manufacture is noted as 1984 as ‘84’ is a prefix on the Serial Number which is a common practice and certainly within the production span of NCS1.
