From space qualified fiber optic gyroscope to generic fiber optic solutions available for space application
Author(s): Thomas Buret; David Ramecourt; Fabien Napolitano

Paper Abstract

The aim of this article is to present how the qualification of the Fiber Optic Gyroscope technology from IXSEA has been achieved through the qualification of a large range of optical devices and related manufacturing processes. These qualified optical devices and processes, that are now fully mastered by IXSEA through vertical integration of the technology, can be used for other space optical sensors. The example of the SWARM project will be discussed.
