The most precise navigation systems are commonly based on at least 3 laser gyros and 3 mechanical accelerometers, based on moving or tensioned elements. Laser gyro's "dead zone" guides to existence of additive subsystems, and mechanical accelerometer accumulate the "error of zero" and does not measure during the free fall of an object. Here is found that dead zone on laser gyro characteristics is a result of the precession of momentum of pulse of ring baghron. The necessity of precise laser gyro tuning in Alert city, Canada, is discussed. The method to minimize the precession and to avoid the dead zone on the output characteristics is proposed. Therewith new solutions for autonomous control and navigation are discussed. Here is proposed the autonomous unit of sensors of irregular movement without moving parts and without ring laser resonators, disposed motionless on the object to be measured, based on unique unified 6 mini modules of the autonomous resonatory devices (ARD's). Another new solution could be computer 3D-mouse without pad and with 3 independent outputs for each axis of irregular movement, or the gear of control, which could be arranged in the marker or pen. ARD theory, the experiments and testing are discussed.
