12 November 1996 Fiber optic gyros for space, marine, and aviation applications
Author Affiliations +
Fiber-optic gyroscopes (FOGs) are under development at Honeywell as the primary next generation inertial sensor. The open-loop FOG technology has been successfully transitioned to production for attitude heading reference systems and the results of this effort are reported. New developments in closed-loop FOG technology aimed at high performance space applications and at navigation grade aviation applications, are underway. In the former case, results on a high precision FOG are reported. In the latter case, special emphasis is placed on improvements of depolarized FOG technology, which promises to produce a low cost navigation grade sensor.
