dc.description.abstract The JPL Inertial Reference Unit (IRU) is the single most sophisticated assembly on the Cassini Spacecraft. At the core of the IRU is the state-of-the-art, Litton (formerly Delco) Hemispherical Resonator Gyroscope (HRG). Launched in October 1997, Cassini's trajectory utilizes gravity assist manuevers around Venus (twice), Earth, and Jupiter over a seven year period, arriving at Saturn in June 2004. en_US
