Paper Abstract

Fiber optic gyroscope 1984 development status is reviewed and summarized. The compan-ies, agencies and universities involved in this development are listed, and leaders are discussed. Included in the review are these gyro categories: All-fiber Fiber - plus - bulk optics Fiber - plus IOC The US funding of development of fiber optic gyros, segmented into internal R&D and government funding, is forecasted, 1984-1994. The US production of fiber optic gyroscopes is forecasted, year by year, 1984-1994. The forecast is segmented into repeatability rate categories and related applications, and includes both quantity and value data. Fiber optic gyro forecasted production is contrasted to spinning mass and ring laser gyroscope demand. Currently available fiber optic components for gyroscope use are reviewed, and performance advances of these components are forecasted. Component price trends are fore-casted. Components discussed include: Single mode fiber - Unipolarized fiber - Conventional single mode - Polarization maintaining Emitters and detectors Couplers Other fiber components Integrated optic circuits The trend to operation at 1.3-1.6 microns is forecasted. Component performance in the 1.3-1.6 micron range is projected. Component suppliers are listed.
