The paper deals with the problem of nutation damping of dynamically tuned gyroscopes (DTG). Unlike the common two-axis gyroscopes, the DTG damping torques caused by dry and viscous frictions are absent in gimbal bearings, while those due to the rotor/gaseous medium interaction are insufficient to provide the required nutation damping. A physical explanation is given to the damping torques induced in the gyroscope by the magnetoelectric torque detectors. Control coils of the latter are included in the output circuits of the electronic amplifiers. The equation is proposed for the calculation of the damping torque. The numerical estimate of the damping coefficient is given in this paper.
