Paper Abstract

British Aerospace has a long history in the design and development of optical gyros. The closed loop fiber optic gyro using the interferometric gyro architecture operating at 1.3 micron wavelength has been the principal development in recent years. Parallel digital data is output within a 70 mm cube gyro package. Performance data is presented for these gyros covering a rate range of +/- 1000 deg/sec under various environmental conditions. A resonator fiber optic gyro is also under development. Design principles are reviewed and ranges of application are given.
