I'm investigating a rate integrating gyroscope (RIG) that takes advantage of the axi-symmetry design of the disc resonator gyroscope (DRG) by using novel control methods to achieve better performance than existing systems. Introducing parametric amplification and dynamic discrete-time algorithms to an inherently high quality factor (Q) resonator will enable gyroscopes with lower noise, power and drift.
