    A rate gyro is a gyroscope that is suspended in just one gimbal whose bearings form its output axis and which is restrained by a spring; rotation of the gyroscope frame about an axis perpendicular to both spin and output axes produces precession of the gimbal within the bearings proportional to the rate of rotation.

    ((( If you read the article further down, you will notice that a rate gyro is used to measure angular velocity. )))
