Alison Brown: Enhanced global positioning system Delta-Range processing. Litton Systems, Gerald L Cline, February 24, 1987: US04646096 (34 worldwide citation)

A circuit is shown which utilizes signals transmitted from global positioning system satellites to create change in phase signals. The change in phase signals are measured over a predetermined time interval, one second, and stored. The stored signals are applied to a Kalman filter and back to the st ...

Tae M Kwon: Nuclear magnetic resonance cell having improved temperature sensitivity and method for manufacturing same. Litton Systems, Gerald L Cline, July 24, 1984: US04461996 (14 worldwide citation)

A nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) cell for use in a gyro is shown which is maintained at a predetermined temperature, established by testing. Testing of each cell is conducted by heating the cell within a gyro to a series of temperatures and plotting the gyro bias (degrees/time) for each temperatur ...
