Paper Abstract

Laser gyros are beginning to replace "spinning wheel" gyros in some higher-performance applications because they offer lower cost of ownership. However, in applications such as tactical missile guidance their cost is too high for the performance needed. The use of integrated optics will lower the cost of optical gyros. In this paper, the different kinds of optical gyros are compared, and examples of the use of integrated optics elements in the micro-optic gyro are given.
