In a gyro, the spin axis of the gyro .
Penetrating radiation similar to light, but with shorter wavelength, that can penetrate human tissue .
In a gyro, an axis through the center of gravity and perpendicular to the spin axis .
In a gyro, an axis through the center of gravity and mutually perpendicular to both the X (spin) and Y axes .
A PN-junction diode designed to operate in the reverse-bias breakdown region .
A reverse breakdown effect in diodes in which breakdown occurs at reverse voltages below 5 volts. The presence of a high energy field at the junction of a semiconductor produces the breakdown .
The process of adjusting a synchro to its electrical zero position .
ZONE OF MUTUAL VISIBILITY
The area where the satellite can be seen by both the up- and down-link earth terminals .
