Paper Abstract

I.A.I.'s Precision Instrument Industry division (TAMAM) has developed a tactical grade ring laser gyro (RLG). The gyro, which is only 3 cm long per leg, triangular shaped, has been developed for application of moderate performance (stabilization, control, low/medium accuracy navigational systems), where small size and weight are of a particular importance. The gyro is characterized by a bias of better than 0.5 degree(s)/h and scale factor stability better than 200 ppm over a dynamic range of at least 500 degree(s)/sec. It has been tested over a temperature range of -35 degree(s) to 90 degree(s)C, 16.8 g rms vibration and over 100 g shock levels.
