Paper Abstract

Recent advances in fiber and integrated optical components have made it possible to demonstrate fiber optic rotation sensors which have performance levels adequate for use in tactical missile applications. Fiber gyros are now in the engineering phase and flight worthy prototypes may be ready within the next two to three years. Requirements for advanced projectiles and fiber gyro designs capable of meeting these requirements are discussed below.
