Paper Abstract

Honeywell's first-generation, high-performance interferometric fiber-optic gyroscope (IFOG) was tested along with sensor electronics over a limited static and dynamic temperature environment. This serrodyne closed-loop IFOG consisting of polarization-maintaining fiber components and a LiNbO3 phase modulator has simultaneously achieved inertial-grade requirements for bias stability, bias repeatability, bias temperature sensitivity, bias temperature-rate sensitivity, random noise, and scale-factor error over the tested temperature range.
