A fiber-optic gyroscope(FOG) has already been selected to fulfill the inertial navigation system(INS) function of the new satellite launching vehicle of ISAS in Japan, and the flight test of our FOG was successfully demonstrated on February 22, 1990. This paper covers the aiming of development, design description, evaluation and productization of our FOG. Finally, reviews of a broader perspective of this new gyro technology are descussed.
