Paper Abstract

Fiber optic gyroscopes (FOGs) are developed for industrial and consumer applications. The bias error, which is determined by electrical circuits rather than the optical system, varies between 0.01 and 36 deg/hr depending on the construction of the electrical system. The scale factor error at each input rate is less than 0.5% in the temperature range of -30 to 85 degree(s)C. These FOGs are compact, highly reliable, and need only a +12 V D.C. power source. They are ready for mass production.
