Paper Abstract

This contribution reports on investigations of the rotation rate error, which occurs at a fibre gyroscope output when its sensing coil is subjected to dynamic temperature variations. The severity of the problem is best illustrated by the fact that the tempera-ture nonuniformity of the sensor coil must be less than 0,01 °C if the system is to resolve rotation rates of 0,01 °/h /1/. This requirement can easily be met in the lab by use of sophisticated control and shielding techniques. However, for a system to be usable under common environmental conditions, special coiling and encapsulating techniques must be developed in order to achieve immunity versus thermal effects.
