Paper Abstract

Litton is developing an interferometric fiber optic gyroscope for future navigation, guidance, and stabilization applications. The gyro is presently less than three inches in diameter, which is size competitive with current ring laser gyros of equal performance. In this paper we report on the bias, scale factor, and input axis alignment performance of the inertial navigation fiber optic gyroscope over extended, dynamic temperature environments.
