Paper Abstract

The requirements of fiber-optic gyros (FOGs) for the most demanding mission profiles of future weapon systems are examined. A concept of a high-performance depolarized FOG was developed that uses a standard single-mode fiber coil with a depolarized optical circuit including a multifunction integrated optic device, making it possible to achieve automated and reproducible production of high-performance tactical FOGs at low cost. The paper describes the optical configuration of this FOG and the gyro's electronics and presents the test data.
