Research Status Of Fiber Optic Gyroscopes

May 29, 2018



The outstanding characteristics offiber optic gyroscopes make them ideal for use in aerospace, airborne systems, and military technology.Social users, especially the military, attach great importance to the research of fiber optic gyroscopes based on the United States, Japan, and France The commercialization of fiber optic gyroscopes began in the early 1990s, and low focused on medium-precision.Fiber optic gyros (especially interferometric fiber optic gyroscopes) have been commercialized and applied in many fields. Development of high-precision fiber optic gyroscopes Development is moving towards maturity.

In foreign countries, engineering prototypes of l°/h to 0.01°/h have been used in aircraft inertial measurement combination devices. The United States has used a 0.1°/h fiber optic gyroscope for tactical missile inertial navigation systems. The new navigation system The US Department of Defense decided that the accuracy of the fiber optic gyroscope reached 0.01°/h in 1996, 0.001°/h in 2001, and 0.0001°/h in 2006. , a trend that replaced the traditional mechanical gyroscope.
