Abstract The Hemispherical Resonator Gyro (HRG) has proven itself to be an ultra-reliable technology for space application with over 20 million operation hours and 100% mission success. Northrop Grumman Navigation Systems Division is developing a terrestrial inertial navigation system, INS, based on the proven space technology that can be used for precision pointing applications. The Precision Pointing System (PPS) design yields a small size and lightweight system and will require only a few watts of power to operate. To achieve this small sized INS, the PPS utilizes a new golf-ball sized milli-HRG (mHRG) that is based on the current HRG 130P production gyro design used in extremely accurate space pointing systems. The power reduction is derived from a new electronics design based around low power elements.
