Abstract
An optical gyrocompass is based on the high-performance fiber optic gyroscope's sensitivity to the earth's rotation rate. The advantage over conventional gyrocompasses is that it starts up quickly and should also have a long operating life. An optical gyrocompass is developed with a north-seeking accuracy of 0.05 degree.
