Fiber optic strapdown inertial navigation system

Aug 20, 2017


FOG INS inner IMU is composed of three-axis fiber optic gyroscope and three quartz flexible accelerometers.


Fiber optic gyroscope is a kind of fiber optic interferometer, which based on Sagnac effect, namely, two light beams of transmitting each other are interfering in the same optical fiber sensing ring, to form the fiber optic Sagnac interferometer, as shown in Figure 1.
