Paper Abstract

The paper examines the current status of Litton's design approach to the attitude-and-heading reference system interferometric fiber-optic gyro (IFOG). Theoretical models used to predict the IFOG bias performance over a temperature range are described. Data are presented for the performance of IFOGs over an extended environment. The combined test data on IFOGs and IFOG-based inertial measurement units (IMUs) obtained to date, along with the environmental performance and survivability data obtained with IFOG components of the type anticipated for production, support the prediction that low-production-cost IFOG-based systems are capable of meeting the performance requirements of medium-accuracy systems for near-future military applications.
