Paper Abstract

Fiber Optic Gyro performance has progressed sufficiently to allow productization for sp8ce applications. Data is presented showing a stable bias (<0.1 deg/hr) over 0 to 40oC environment with low random noise (0.006 deg/J) and modest scale factor stability (0.2%). Its low power consumption, light weight, and potential for low cost and high reliability make it ideal for the space environment.
