The nuclear radiation resistant control moment gyroscope is a sensing and control device intended for service in space vehicles with nuclear radiation environment. Its main function is to control the altitude and stability of a spacecraft in orbit. The nuclear radiation resistance is achieved through the highly selective use of radiation resistant materials in the design. One such gyro has been ground tested in a nuclear radiation environment.
