Paper Abstract

The USAF Avionics Laboratory is developing miniaturized fiber optic gyroscopes as replacements for new or existing mechanical devices which have become expensive, unreliable and difficult to obtain. The modular architecture of the fiber optic rate gyro (FORG) utilizes a basic single axis DC In/DC Out instrument and associated electronics packaged within a cylinder approximately 1 inch in diameter and 2.625 inches in length. Application to an individual system requires only a small interface adapter to accommodate unique parameters. The basic instrument and interface adapter can often be packaged together into a form, fit, and function replacement for the original device.
