A platform on which instruments (such as gravimeters) can be mounted where they will remain nearly level despite tilt of the platform support. The platform, mounted on gimbals, is controlled by a gyroscope coupled to an accelerometer-controlled servo system on each gimbal axis. Used in measuring gravity on a ship in motion and for mounting inertial navigation sensors.
