The gyro magnetic compass AN/ASN-43 set is a directional sensing system which provides an accurate visual reference indication of magnetic heading (MAG) of the helicopter. The information provided by the system is used for navigation and to control the flight path of the helicopter. The system may also be used as a free directional gyro (DG) in areas where magnetic reference is unreliable. The compass set supplies information to the Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI) located on the pilot instrument panel and a course indicator (RMI) located on the gunner instrument panel. The compass system functions as determined by the compass controller controller C-6347( ) / ASN-43 located in the pilot right console.
