Precision and Stable Fiber Optical Gyroscope Made of Air-Core Fiber
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Agiltron proposes to systematic study the un-stable mechanisms, leading to the establishment of space qualification procedure for fiber optic gyros (FOGs). The approach leverages our industry experiences in satellite FOG component and sensor system fabrication. This program will lead to development of a certification service for the air-core photonic band-gap fiber components and navigation-grade FOGs with high performance. In addition, we propose to develop a new generation of fiber optic gyro components that has high thermal stability and are fundamentally resistant to space radiations, incorporating new breakthrough in engineered optical designs. Phase I will identify the critical technology challenges, synthesize advanced architectures, perform concept feasibility analysis and define the Phase II approach in collaboration with Honeywell.
