This paper presents progress on the standard logic circuit and controller design typically used in a closed loop Fiber-Optic Gyroscope that offers substantially improved performance. The standard circuit, with decades of heritage, is shown to underperform under particular Rate profiles and requirements. The optimized controller design is described; Analysis and measurements are presented. The results show improvements of up to three orders of magnitude in angle measurement accuracy. In addition to accuracy, performance under high dynamic environments is likely to be improved.
