A low cost Gyrocompass has been developed using the Fiber Optic Gyroscope. A 0.16 deg. rms direction finding performance has been demonstrated using a low noise Fiber Optic Gyroscope with depolarized configuration. This paper describes the configuration & performance of FOG & the Gyrocompass (FOG compass).
