The precision alignment gyrocompass (PAG) system, a prototype system, was thoroughly evaluated at one laboratory and used at a second laboratory. A wealth of information describing potential error sources such as draft sensitivity, warm-up time, creep, seismic disturbances, and their circumvention was generated. System repeatability is discussed as it affects operating procedures. Two-position, four-position, and H-modulation gyrocompass techniques were studied, tested, and evaluated. At one location, the PAG absolute system accuracy was checked against a precision astronomically referenced azimuth in a very quiet and stable suburban environment. At the second location, in a noisy urban area, an optical azimuth reference was established using the PAG.
