Paper Abstract

Substantial progress has been made in recent years toward the development of producible fiber-optic rotation sensors. An overview is presented of the movement of the fiber-optic gyro into a product at McDonnell Douglas from early developments to a fieldable oil drilling tool. The current state-of-the-art of fiber-optic gyro technology with respect to near term product prospects is assessed.
