Achievement of gyroscope systems for stabilizing and guiding missiles, aircraft, and sea vessels has been made possible by development of "frictionless" gyros with near perfect preciseness. This development of Sperry Gyroscope Company located in Great Neck, L. I., New York, hinges on a unique method for controlling ball bearings within "simple" gyroscopes.
