Paper Abstract

Optical rotation sensors have reached the level of maturity that they are strongly being considered for Air Force systems. These new inertial sensors are ideal strapped down devices and show great potential for answering the requirements of future inertial systems. This paper discusses the Various applications for these sensors and some of the major factors that could prolong their entry into the Air Force inventory.
